Our Ill Wills

Album Reveiw

On the Shout Out Louds' debut album, Howl Howl Gaff Gaff, they revealed a passion for the sound of the Cure and a ton of 80s indie sound. A Swedish band that took guitar-based indie rock to the USA, that album was genuinely fun and hook-laden.

Our Ill Wills has more 80s in it, but rather than cranking up the Cure references (already at 10 on the dial), they have also layered in some Smiths and other Britpop - a touch of Pulp here and there. The lead singer Adam Olenius has a Goldmember-style schmoking accent that endears rather than annoys, and the band always give off a feeling that they genuinely enjoy playing together and ripping off their 80s record collections.

Our Ill Wills enjoys an upgraded production, although that can add sheen where some of the feel used to be, however that's a small gripe - this is an easy win for those who liked a little bit of eyeliner with their lead singers 20 years ago.

Rating 8/10
