Boomkat Product Review:
The second single to be lifted from Mùm's Go Go Smear The Poison Ivy album, 'Marmalade Fires' might suffer a little from having such a cutesy, combustible breakfast spread-related title, but the group actually sound a good deal less twee since the departure of Kristin Valtysdottir. The band seem to be operating on a bigger scale than before, benefiting from elaborate arrangements where electronic techniques and chamber orchestration meet head-on without crowding one another out, and the resultant song is among their most memorable. B-side 'Rhubarbidoo' taps into a deconstructed version of this sound with some great brass passages standing out from the fizzing electronic debris. Lovely.
