In a few words:
The self-titled, first album of this English band is a really good album. The band has its own style, which hardly reminds Radiohead. Apart from the interesting music, extra credit goes to the vocalist, James Mudriczki, because with his "special" voice rise the band to a higher level, especially at their live shows (he is very energetic). The band has a huge success in Greece,and gives a lot of live shows there.

Personal highlights:
"I Suppose", "Mr. Brown" and "Casting Lazy Shadows"
