A track of very different countenance to their introduction earlier in the year, Floating Dagger (available on bandcamp), bounds across the room on toe stomping blue brothel creepers as it hauls the audience on to the dance floor to jive away to the merseybeat / gothic influences of the song as the burgeoning waistline of the bass bends the sub-woofer to the beat of the busy flourishes of percussion while guitars finger across fretboard and the sparse vocal chants hypnotically.

I was enamoured previously and Floating Dagger reaffirms and strengthen my troth.

The follow-up release to the 2016 LP The Space Tape (available on bandcamp) has, on the basis of the first track to surface from the album – Sticky Baby – a more relaxed and natural feeling. Perhaps borne from the initial reveal having an urgency of ideas to make a stamp, or that they have got to know each other better, as although still very much centred around David Cunningham, what was a live performance line-up has become an organic being with everyone chipping through ideas and shaping songs, it may even be something else, however, whatever it may be – it is, to me, a change for the better.

Two days of live track studio recordings certainly help to give the music an honesty which is palpable through the speakers and going by Sticky Baby, Dolphin Man Returns, will be an LP to add to the collection of ‘time to unwind and relax the mind’ playlist.
