London's Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian are the still awaiting an 'Ooh, them!' mega-hit, which is befuddling considering their consistency across seven albums to date.
Producer Ali Staton — well accustomed to the luxurious cut of Rufus Wainwright's jib — is a great choice to guide Knights' tempered underground-busker-done-good folktronica. On Hope We Make It, he croons like Thom Yorke un-bogged by Radiohead's cleverness while (lead single) Keep Me Around gently toddles back and forth like a cuddly teddy bear finding its feet. Lost Property is laid-back without being lackadaisical and easy to get lost in.
