On this third record, however, they seem to have struck out into squarer, more mature territory, which – confusingly – sounds quite exciting. The squareness is relative: the band still operate in the zeitgeisty area of trip hop-informed pop. But compared to the current glut of mannered, coming of age-themed electronica, this feels far more substantial. It’s warmer, more expansive and uptempo – a slightly weird knitted jumper of an album.
