Ah the difficult second album. A toughie for any band, particularly for one who has been touted as the stand-in Libertines since their debut in 2013. The follow-up has been released pretty swiftly and doesn’t really deviate from form. Expect more of the same: indie rock guitars, summery hooks and choruses that lend themselves to sing-alongs. It doesn’t sound like anything I’ve not heard before, the simple punk-rock influences are there for all to hear, but does that make it any less worthy? It’s certainly enjoyable, in the same way an ice lolly is: a fun diversion while it lasts but not particularly memorable. Skip to title track, Danger In The Club, poppy Gout! Gang! Go! and melancholy The Jacket Song.
