Grammatics - Grammatics

After promising a lot with "The Vague Archive" song and video, these Leeds-based indie-poppers fill all expectations and some more, with a very solid debut that is also a bit of a surprise. Loaded with very rich details and oh-so-serious heartfelt lyrics, there are not many upbeat songs in here like "The Vague Archive". Instead, what we mostly have are clever ballads full of affected postures, feelings and riffs that still manage to sound genuine and sincere. Basically, this is demanding music that needs us to be open and fully available, in order to take the most out of it. And then, if you're not moved by a song like "Murderer", you probably don't have a heart. (8/10)
