That's a lie. These guys seem to be enjoying themselves a good deal. Their latest offering—the wiry, playful Make a Mess of Sacred Ground—reads like a cross between 90s Britpop and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's breakthrough album, with erratic, faux-Brit accented vocals sprinting through charmingly petulant lines like, "I see their love, it has no function/I say we bring those bastards down." Backed by prickly guitar runs and endless hooks, their pent-up energy pools over: They're wound up, and ready to win you over.
