Boomkat Product Review:
It Hugs Back, with their choppy, clean guitars and swelling synthesizer undercurrents, channel classic twee pop - although they do so without ever quite sounding twee at all. The constituent parts are all in place but there's something a whole lot stronger, and frankly, cooler about the band's resolve. B-side 'Both Arms' is a blissful piece of slowcore propelled by low key drum machines and exquisitely warm brass chords. Very, very good indeed.
