Idle Lovers are only on their second and it shows. All Control is very much the en vogue disco pop of the moment, with a steely indie backbone. It ain’t bad, but such songs are ten a penny nowadays. Fine Line reminds me too much of The Pigeon Detectives for me to like it and Where Were You When The Lights Went Out? is more of the same lumpen indie rock. On the whole, pretty poor.
All Control is out on May 25th
