A triumph

When Supergrass split in 2010, the UK lost one of its best-loved and enduring bands. While ex-bandmate Danny Goffey recently cooked up a storm on Celebrity Masterchef, vocalist Gaz Coombes got busy making his debut solo album. And it is a belter. Basking in the freedom of experimentation, a rejuvenated Coombes is on vibrant form on the ethereal navel-gaze of ‘Bombs’, the understated menace of ‘Sub-Divider’ and the cinematic ‘Sleeping Giant’, while ‘Whore’ is a glorious vintage Supergrass anthem. Reunited with producer Sam Williams ‘...Here Come The Bombs’ is fresh and stylish and marks Coombes’ finest work in over a decade. A triumph.
