Although I love that track, I didn’t really find anything on the rest of the album that held my interest. That’s not to say that this album is bad, just not to my own personal taste.
That’s why ‘Bloom‘ was such a surprise. The lead single ‘Myth’ led me to the rest of the record which, although criticised by some for being too samey, I personally find to be their most consistent, well-rounded and accessible album.
If you like summer tinged dream-pop with glacial bursts of guitars and a hypnotically androgynous lead female vocalist, you’re not going to get better than this.
Oh, and the LP cover glows in the dark. Suuuweeeeet!
If I’ve got one criticism, I don’t know why the vinyl release had to be made 45rpm and split across 2 records. The album also features a hidden track, which is a personal pet peeve of mine. But who cares when the tunes are this good
