Album Info

  • Release Date: November 11, 2013
  • Label: The Aesthetic/ Polydor
7 / 10 Former Kid British vocalist Adio Marchant has blossomed since shaking off the indie-ska shackles of his former band, and this second EP is further proof. As Bipolar Sunshine, Marchant writes kitchen-sink dramas of the shimmering synth-pop variety, and he seems to relish that he can be a great deal more creative in his new guise. ‘Drowning Butterflies’ is infused with a dash of reggae, Ladysmith Black Mambazo vocal harmonies add warmth to ‘Love More Worry Less’ and hazy swirls of ethereal electronica make ‘Trouble’ one of his best songs yet. But what holds everything together is Marchant’s ability to tell a vivid tale that swings from introspective lows to optimistic highs.
