I Like Trains, The Shallows Album Review


If any current band were to put together a concept record based on historical intellect while referencing great thinkers such as Freud and Nietzsche, it would be I Like Trains. Having spent their entire career to date confounding fans and critics alike - whether it be documenting The Beeching Report which redefined British railway transportation, Captain Scott's doomed return from the South Pole or reclusive chess player Bobby Fischer - they've conspired to produce some of the most invigorating lyrical asides set to music this past decade. 'A decade?!' I hear you exclaim, 'Really?' Really. Give or take a few months. And what a difference that time has made from a musical perspective at any rate. Initially passed off as a post-rock outfit (and while early releases such as 'Stainless Steel' and 'Terra Nova' may have fit that genre structurally), it was always pretty obvious to anyone that's followed them live, I Like Trains were about so much more than that. Musically progressive between every record, it's almost become an expectation for them to take a further step into the unknown, and on album three, 'The Shallows', such expectations are surpassed once more.

iLiKETRAiNS, He Who Saw The Deep Album Review


This album will appeal to more than just train spotters. Spine-tingling, goose-bump inducing alternative post-rock brilliance is what this Leeds-based quartet offer with their second full length album. A year since the release of the divine taster single 'Sea Of Regrets', also on the albums tracklisting', iLiKETRAiNS return with He Who Saw The Deep; a stunning collection of powerful, progressive, melodic post-rock.

Opener 'When We Were Kings' heralds something of a new direction for the band with picked guitar introduction and stomping feel reminiscent of indie contemporaries Foals or Bloc Party; it's more upbeat than usual with dance floor friendly verses and kicking into epic, cymbal heavy choruses ridden with atmospheric soaring guitar lines. Here, iLiKETRAiNS prove that they are contemporary and receptive to the music of their peers and, simultaneously, masters of the soaring, emotive post-rock blend that they've perfected over the years; with this track, the forceful power of their trademark guitar sound meets the pounding drums of indie pop.
