No autotune or sonic smoothery in earshot and it’s a challenging but at times extraordinary listen. Proudly dissonant and cacophonous one minute, dreamily ambient and mumbly the next, then punkishly bolshy and cinematic. It’s brilliantly original and ambitious stuff. Imagine Eno and Steve Reich sharing methCider with Bjork and Mark E Smith as teenagers hanging round desolate West Country bus stations and making a racket. You’re almost there. Very proud of them.
