Reliably informed

This mini-EP marks the end of six long years away from the music scene for Aces & Sinners and brings us two tracks with their own individual charm. The first, The Devil Saw Me Last Night, combines Jamie Ainslie’s rousing, chanting vocals with an infectious beat and Andrew Graham’s deft, creamy-sounding guitar, and makes for a clean, purposeful three-minute track with a satisfying, soaring chorus.

Second offering Robotology is even more infectious; its beat and melody drifts up to those mellow, ethereal places that The Stone Roses went to. A dreamy, rolling refrain with lyrics like “And it always feels like it’s raining/When you’re away/I’m counting down the time till you’re back here/Again and again” adds to the ever-likeable Sixties feel.
