Los Campesinos! - Sick Scenes— Si Sharp -
LC! have struggled to find their voice over their last two albums. After being largely defined by the youthful energy of their first releases, their music took a bleaker turn. Lyrically they’ve always been interesting with their warts and all tales of young love and loss but their divisive quirky/irksome super-indie pop sound made way for a necessary but less engaging ‘maturity’. On Sick Scenes they found their sound - energetic in places, contemplative in others but always holding a wonderfully unflattering mirror to Gareth’s relationships.
