"The songs that [frontman Richard Sansom] sings with no small flamboyance are quite florid themselves, darting this way and that, hard to categorise, with elements of electronica, and the intricacy of math rock. Early comparisons have been to bands as disparate in terms of genres and eras as the Associates, the xx and Foals...Still only teenagers – and comprising four undergraduates plus one trainee Saville Row tailor – the Oxford quintet have supported Django Django and Spector and have had their debut single, Echo, produced by Steve Osborne, whose work with Suede (but probably not his work with New Order) offers some clues as to what to expect from their music...New single Echo is their best track so far...We wouldn't...be surprised if the band ended up on a lot of "ones to watch in 2013" lists.
The buzz: "The anguish and despair in Richard Sansom's grave vocals accelerated as glittering arpeggios rippled along in the background and we were sold" – Beat Pyramid.
The truth: Prepare for an affectionate punch.
Most likely to: Make a splash.
Least likely to: Drown."
