The Courteeners - Anna

Rabbit(s) in the headlights with no place else to go?
The Courteeners - Anna

For those that thought The Courteeners had went the way of the Furby, as we can clearly see, both these nonsense creatures are making a comeback. ‘Anna’ is full of uninspired and recycled riffs starkly illuminated by the God awful woe-is-me-I’m-northern lyrics demonstrated in the likes of the epic/epic-fail synthdriven ‘Welcome To The Rave’: “But the city’s view is slanted / Did we take our dreams for granted? / Are the walls falling all around us?” It’s not 2008 forever, Liam, pull yourself together. The band sum up their current stance perfectly in ‘Lose Control’: “Rabbit in the headlights with no place else to go.” Couldn’t have said it better myself.
