The opening rush of ‘Hi Pierrot’ will zing the heartstrings of even the most hardened cynic, conjuring as it does a joyful melancholy akin to looking at photographs of fondly remembered times.  Elsewhere, ‘Calling Tomorrow’ drifts into the stratosphere with an  effervescent ascending guitar break at the songs tail-end. Even ‘Horoscope’ with its lyric of ‘clouds are raining down from the sky’ is delivered as if sunshine is not too far away.

To provide balance, the duo bare their fangs on the angry ‘Privatisation’ (sample lyric – “they don’t pay their taxes, they don’t live where you live/ Every time you buy a train ticket you give them ten quid”), and kick out a moody Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger-styled jam on the yearning ‘I’ll Be Seeing You’.  But for the most part this is a gloriously up-tempo affair, calling to mind some of the best work by The Cardigans, the Pastels and even Stereolab in bits. An intriguing record.
