Is there anything better to dispel the gloom than a great bloody WHOMP of glistening guitars and sky-burst choruses? “Cut to the final scene/Does it make your heart beat any faster?” howls Torches’ Charlie Drinkwater with his cannonball-thud of a vocal atop swirling, treacle-rich orchestration akin to a giddier I Like Trains. Just what the doctor ordered.
