'Not Real' sees the Liverpool trio opening out their world to new production techniques, subscribing very much to a studio-as-instrument ethos. Thankfully, they don't get too caught up in the process of production and keep their eyes on the end result. Case in point: new song Greed balances a few new techniques – marching percussion loops and drones amongst them – with a classicist's approach to writing songs. It's properly great as well, evoking a very English sort of psychedelia but in a very modern, cliché-averse way.
Heavenly Recordings release 'Not Real' on April 13th 2015 (pre-order).
