The Very Most – Summer EP

Following on from their excellent spring EP, here is the second instalment of the seasons set. A Mid-80s Lower-Middle Class Family Summer Road Trip is a breezy, top down, coastal road cruise. It burbles and giggles along like a happy calypso, before a Californian/Flaming Lips dreamy interlude. The clicking re-emerges and the harmonies appear over the horizon and they’re on their way again, bringing the sumptuous pure pop song to a close. The Motor-Vue Lights is very Teenage Fanclub in their blissed out, elder statesmen mode, making effortlessly cool pop with gorgeous melodies and harmonies. You're In Love With The Sun is sweet indie pop, so brittle it may fall apart and a tiny, delightful chorus. It’s paddling in the sea and splashing a loved one affectionately. Fireworks is an electronic warble, the summer night lighting up with the gentle tinkling of the song. The words are elongated and spacious, giving the whole song a weird otherworldly feel. Another great EP basically.
