Listening to their new free EP “Landmarks of Lunacy”, I don’t see why they considered a lot of this material way too experimental and the band needed to be reminded that they were a pop band. The most experimental tracks on the EP ‘Ivy Leaves’ and ‘Marble Fields’ seem like a natural progression of the sound of their debut albeit it is a lot less dance-friendly. The standout to me is the close ‘Marble Fields’ which just builds and builds with noisy distant guitars until almost five minutes later unleashing a whole cacophony of synths, drums and guitar. You can listen to the track below and the rest of the EP if you’re on the fence about downloading it here.
