Boomkat Product Review:
The Loungs' debut album for Akoustik Anarkhy is an ambitious assault on guitar pop music, employing the same sort of psychedelic strategies the Super Furry Animals plump for, with plenty of weirdo electronics, sweet, syrupy strings and rough-cut Beach Boys harmonies. The joyous pop of 'Electric Lights' is arguably the band's single finest achievement to date. It's a great piece of pop music that draws on classic indie songwriting and echoing vocal production. Next up is recent single, the lamentably titled 'Armageddon Outta Here', which is another success, sporting the most upscale, near orchestral arrangement on the album. 'Get Along', with its glockenspiel and jazzy brass lines initially brings to mind the work of fellow Mancunians Alfie, only for the whole thing to turn into a kind of rowdy pub-bound hoedown a minute or so in. Far more tranquil is 'In Winter Coats', an especially strong track to close the album on, which but for its prolonged electronic coda would be along the same lines as Belle & Sebastian-style balladry. The Loungs do a fine job of keeping jangly, indie pop songwriting sounding fresh with an excellent ear for arrangement. An impressive debut.
