The pioneers of lad rock have matured significantly since their early pop days, switching focus from a ‘bros-before-hoes’ mentality to infinitely more pressing concerns. Whether it’s their aversion to materialistic selfishness in the chilled-out summerwave of Swimwear Season, or fearful rage the increasing social acceptance of racism in electronic rap rock track Uber, the Bedford four-piece continue their trend of smuggling unexpectedly deep topics in irritatingly catchy bops.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Don Broco record without some comedy songs: Bruce Willis might not single-handedly revive the nu-metal genre, but will at least have crowds screaming “Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker” in sheer euphoria. It’s a bold and potentially egotistical move to outright call an album ‘amazing’, but they aren’t far off.
