We’ll admit it. We preferred The Maccabees when they were singing about toothpaste and forgetting to shave. ‘Went Away’, then, is definitely not that, and instead it’s a perfectly serviceable slice of post-Arcade Fire indie. Which is fine, but can’t they just write another track about Colgate Total?
