An intriguing blend of shoegaze with strong Jesus & Mary Chain vibes and weary Americana turns out to be a perfectly natural mix on Caution’s new album.

As is the case with many artists over the last few years, it was constructed at a distance with the title Arcola being a halfway location between the two artists – Minneapolis-based Nora Button and Cash Langdon in Birmingham, both formerly of power pop band Saturday Night. They exchanged voice memos and demos, constructing tracks full of woozy, fuzzed out guitar driven through a wave of expansive reverb, electronic percussion and harmonised and delayed lyrics. Stand out track is The Hand That Looks Like Mine, with its breakneck rapid fire beats and call and response vocals. Shoes are looking good.
