Reliably informed

Throughout its four tracks, How Sick I Became, Running From Myself succeeds at capturing all that is great about melancholy-shot indie without ever collapsing under the weight of itself. On top of a glorious storm of sound, the EP tackles subjects of emotional brevity with an effortlessness that immediately calls to mind the songcraft of Felt, The Go-Betweens and Sire-era The Replacements, whilst wisely avoiding becoming a half-hearted pastiche of that particular school of post-punk.

The production is utterly crystalline, serving the intricate melodies and glorious worlds within these songs, allowing the EP to shine as a bold, enthralling, fresh and endlessly-replayable statement of intent from an absolute visionary of a songwriter. Absolutely essential listening.
