Turin Brakes, Outbursts Album Review


Releasing their fifth album in 9 years, Turin Brakes return as wonderfully melodic as ever. It's often the case that bands such as Turin Brakes become irrelevant and slate this far down the line, however one listen to the albums opener and such preconceptions are blown away. The Sea Change is an acoustic delight, relentless strumming is met by perfect and precise finger picking before a glorious vocal washes over both to makeup a statement of intent from the Balham duo. Similarly Rocket Song follows the same code of conduct, a track that has single material written all over it.

However the rot stops with Will Power, a powerful, chorus heavy anthem that owes as much to its rhythm section as it does anything else.
