Album Review

The Lucksmiths can seemingly churn out great indie pop with all the effort of turning on their amps. Every record they have done has been textbook from the tender vocals, introspective but not soppy lyrics, easygoing blend of acoustic and electric guitars, to the subtle yet striking arrangements and simple production.

Still, this EP is another example of indie pop at its best proving once again that you just can't go wrong with the Lucksmiths.
