I’ve waited hours for this
I’ve made myself so sick
I wish I’d stayed

then I could make it safe and clean
if only I was sure
that my head on the door was a dream

As straight forward a pop song as the band have penned to date, Too Young represents a pop sensibility and clarity, newly found on this album. Musically referencing anything from a tearful The Cure, to a Subterranean Bob Dylan, the song sees the band

The buzz so far: Post-punk shoegazers known for their emphatic live shows, this London foursome’s debut self-titled EP combines the spiked angst of The Cure and New Order’s organic basslines, with a world-weary lyrical outlook fuelled by “a sense of
