Sounds soaring, skyscrapering, cloud-surfing, moon-touching and cliff-leaping - wherever you are.

‘Van Der Graaff’ is so soaring, skyscrapering, cloud-surfing, moon-touching and cliff-leaping it makes me cry before I’m 10 seconds in. No snide payoffs about how this Doves-meets-Sigur Rós technique only has this effect in Manchester – I’m writing this in Upper Clapton, London.
