We Will Break / Up Someday surfaced last week in two versions. One – a radio edition, running for a sliver under four and half minutes the other – the full version which is nine and a sixth minutes of progressive shimmering guitar threaded with a pastel synth through which an unexpectedly expressive drifting vocal slips in to the room all of which is bustled along by a frenetic drum-kit and resulting in a song that has ever more varied texturing and complex layering the longer it progresses – is the more appropriate version to introduce The Houses (Where We Grew Up).

Welded deeply in to ’60s psychedelia the pairing are able to refresh the ideas more accommodating for the more typical goldfish like attention span of an audience of the ’10s with no track extending over five minutes, yet within that curtailed framework are able to deliver music which seeps billowing clouds of hazy expansive sound which quietly flows through the arteries to deliver in to the brain a dose of becalming dopamine and resulting lay copious layers of feel good in which the listener is invited to lay becalmed of the stresses of daily life.

Those more perspicacious of the nature of my writing over the years, where I often develop allegory through prose, through, both the wording and also in construct of the article, will have noticed, whilst the thoughts on the music are bounded by recognition that Tomorrow Forever phrase their sounds to their abbreviated habituation, the body of this review merely contains three sentences and three paragraphs, harking more of ’60s psychedelia than ’10s brevity, hence intimating that extended versions of each individual track would, in my view, not be excessive.

The second track of the EP (available on bandcamp) being Do You Feel What I Feel?.
