Reliably informed

Charts & Graphs cite 80s luminaries Gang of Four and Talking Heads as influences on new track Intruder Alert, and there is certainly some of that knowing musicality in this new track, featuring a real earworm of a just-slightly overdriven guitar riff and a bass line pummelling in its simplicity. In the slightly more angular chorus, which on the second repetition gives some really nice chordal colour, the song really comes into its own.

There is more than a flavour of late-noughties indie sound here too, the slight crack and lo-fi distortion in the lead vocals bringing to mind The Strokes/ The Hives style production.
