Don't worry if you weren't one of the 10,000 who bought their 'Shorley Wall' EP, because this is infinitely superior. With 'Blossom's Falling' they have encapsulated the splendour of a thousand summers in a song so sugary sweet and tearfully bitter that it threatens to rend the fabric of the universe asunder. It's all-out attack from the first minute, sloping in on a raft of minor chords and Danny Popplewell's plaintive vocals before thrusting up towards a chorus so glorious that you barely notice that it, erm, sounds a bit like The Lightning Seeds.
Totally ace nonetheless.
