Times New Viking - Dancer Equired

Scrappy But Charming

Scrappy but charming, Times New Viking’s fifth album shows their dirty sound scrubs up nicely. That’s not to say that ‘Dancer Equired’ is fuzz free, the likes of ‘Try Harder’ and ‘More Rumours’ still definitely corrode the ears and scratch away at the brain. In context, however, these new recordings are practically U2 headlining Glastonbury. Aesthetics aside, what makes ‘Dancer Equired’ stand out is the heart in each sweet and infectious song. ‘No Room To Live’ especially is brilliant, typical of a rough but ready album just waiting to be loved.

7/10
