Play - When It's All Over We Still Have to Clear up

The title correctly suggests the messy aftermath of an imploding relationship, but anyone expecting a maudlin album of introspective balladry will be pleasantly surprised by the Belfast-via-Glasgow trio’s second album. This is a record that valiantly runs the emotional gamut of a sundered love affair, from the faux-upbeat denial of the opener ‘Never Gonna Fall In Love Again’, via the spitting spite of ‘Last Ever Lone Gunman’ to the sublimely beautiful ‘Make Love To Me Forever’. 4/5
