‘If’ is grand, ragged round the edges, and wiser than you’ll ever be. “If not for rain, the sun would never split the skies again”, James Allan preaches over ringing guitars and galloping-horse drums. You gotta go through the bad shit to appreciate the good shit, he’s saying. We’ll take that as an excuse for ‘Euphoric Heartbreak’. Welcome back to ‘brilliant’.
