Exceptional Album

Life Is Wasted On The Living is their first LP - recorded by the band themselves, under their own label, Artisan Records, and mixed by Adrian Bushby (Muse, Foo Fighters, Two Door Cinema Club) - and is a collection of their singles including "The Artisan", a predominantly instrumental track which opens the album; "Twenty Three", a stomping track with a pleasantly growly bass line, a message of optimism to Joyce's dad upon being made redundant; "Everybody Dies Alone", a track which puts you slightly on-guard with its discordant start before forming up into a soaring ballad; and title track "Life Is Wasted On The Living", a song about consumerism and the waste of living for material gain, is reminiscent of Biffy Clyro in its attack.

Mingled in with the singles are unreleased tracks and some bonus material. Standouts for me on the album are "Where Are You Now", a raw, intimate piano ballad that will surely resonate with anyone familiar with heartbreak; "The Truth Lies In Honesty", a song about rebuilding yourself after defeat that should have you breaking out into a healthy dose of chair-dancing instantly; and bonus track "5am", a stripped-back tune that had me picturing The Beatles with Kurt Cobain on lead vocals.

This album is extremely well balanced, and almost impossible to define in terms of genre. I can't decide if they are alternative, rock, pop, or just an incredibly clever spin on all of the above. Luke Joyce's vocals are eminently listenable whether he's belting them out or drawing you in on an intimate level, Jonny Garner's guitar work is smart and engaging without being overpowering, and the rhythm section of Kerry Lambert and Simon Harding is slick and solid.

fiN is on the edge of something special and I'm more than happy to stick around for the ride to see where it goes.
