Album Review: Sennen - 'Age Of Denial' (Hungry Audio)

Expansive exploits that channels the splendour of Spiritualized

Having purloined their name from a song title belonging to Ride, who borrowed it from a rugged Cornish cove, it’s no surprise Sennen have co-opted a sound that is far removed from their home in the Norwich fens. Expansive rather than parochial, ‘Age…’ straddles the Atlantic, assimilating US sun-drenched harmony pop while espousing shoegazey noise from these shores. At best they channel Spiritualized and take them some place new, like on gorgeous ‘Broken Promise’, while at worst they retread ground vigorously tromped by The Stone Roses. While they may deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Animal Collective, they can also deviate, coming over like a baggy Byrds mishmash.
