Open Here is  complex and nuanced, coming from a band whose work has often been clouded by emotional and lyrical ambiguity, it’s remarkably straight-ahead. This album bears the earnest directness of artists whose sense of the world has been nudged into focus in a new way. Their 6th and grandest pop master-class yet, in which they reimagine classic influences (principally XTC, Peter Gabriel, Talking Heads and Steely Dan) into a sound that is unmistakably theirs. Jerky, post-punk rhythms happily coexist with baroque orchestrations, arena drum sounds, flute-like keyboards, jazz chord progressions, gear-changing time signatures and the pastoral gentility of early 1970s folk or the gentler end of prog.
