about

The band teams up again with Jamie Grier, who mixed and mastered their first LP, this time placing Grier in the recording chair at Glasgow’s Green Door Studios, while mastering duties fall to Alan Douches (Japandroids, We Were Promised Jetpacks). The album is full of the same timeless spark that drove the debut, propelled by Billy Easter’s toothsome bass lines and Rachel Aggs’ jagged yet rubbery guitar. All three band members lend their voices to Why Choose, pushing and pulling between Aggs’ knife hilt yelps and drummer Andrew Milk’s steadied responses, giving heft to the anxious energy of tracks like “Straight Lines” and brevity to the detached cool of “Passing Through” and “Private Party.”

The band has shown unflagging support for local indie shops in their native UK, delivering (and quickly selling out of) their debut personally in shops all over London. They’ve recently completed tours with Merchandise and fellow UK post-punk unit Golden Teacher. Upcoming legs with Joanna Gruesome, Ought and Shannon and The Clams round out their fall with the addition of a stopover at CMJ to usher in the sophomore release properly in the live setting here in the States.
