Recorded on the tiny Norwegian island of Giske, New Model Army’s new album opens with Passing Through, a track which recaptures the spirit of the early albums. The texture of the album keeps it interesting, the slower Never Arriving is followed by the pacing march of The Weather. The natural beauty and rugged bleakness of the recording location permeates through a musical landscape. You find yourself creating an image in your head as the music fills the room.

New Model Army are a well-respected live act and tracks like Watch And Learn will segue easily into the live set as crowd pleasers. Justin Sullivan and the band have put together a collection of songs that needs to be played together.
