North London rockers Sorry present their debut album 925. I say ‘rockers’ but the fourpiece flirt with grunge, indie, art rock, electronica, blues and tinges of folk; all often within the same song.

There’s a youthful contrarianism throughout 925 but it’s employed with a deftness of touch that shows method in the dissonant madness. Skittish drum breaks and vocal manipulations imbue tracks like Wolf with a richness that demands revisiting, quieter moments like Heather have a delightfully nauseating swing to them and oldies like Starstruck remain infectious. Ode To Boy is a step further, landing somewhere between Aphex Twin and Sigur Ros with its fractured, house-of-cards style production; the result is rather beautiful. A fearless, uncompromising and unique debut, anything could come next.
