“A record with a rich indie pop heritage… the album couldn’t fit any more huge, festival-ready singalong choruses and nagging melodies if it tried.” **** – Dork
“Harks back to the sharp but tuneful early-Eighties world of Elvis Costello and the raucous innocence of mid-Noughties indie.” **** – The Times

And that trend now continues with news of his autumn European headline tour, with a fresh round of bigger shows including Electric Brixton on October 10th.
