The über prolific Andrew Johnson has reset the parameters and stripped it all back to fast guitars and instant hit melodies for his final solo album. Plunge back to a future once again populated by Lemonheads, The Wedding Present and where Teenage Fanclub are forever teenaged.

Ever one for a lyrical flourish, Andy bites into politics and navigates the social media minefield, as well as surfing the look back buzz. Songs of the heart are to the fore, with dual guitars, verses and choruses coursing straight through the veins. Like a breakneck indie Elton John, Reset implores the listener to turn the volume high and recalibrate your expectations to bounce along to these quick-fire bursts of indie with a capital I.
