If you can get past singer Samuel T Herring’s rather theatrical, lion-like vocals, ‘Singles’ is a perfect album for when the weather is shifting into something resembling optimism.
With track names such as ‘Doves’, ‘Spirit’ and ‘Sun In The Morning’, you can imagine the sort of sweet, slow-building synths and jubilant drumbeats contained herein.
Herring’s growling vocals prevent proceedings from becoming too gloopy or nostalgic, and make ‘Singles’ a new-wave treasure.
