With a lead man called Tim DeLaughter you weren’t expecting it to be doom and gloom now were you? The Dallas based collective (we’re talking 20 plus members here, and they seem to have ditched the white gear for a darker shade this time around) do have a terrific gift for capturing giant choral fireworks on record and new single ‘Running Away’ is no exception. This’ll shift you from your slumber, it may even shift granddad for his favourite armchair, just be sure to stick on some Leonard Cohen straight afterwards, don’t want him thinking there are other things he needs to do before he croaks it. ‘Running Away’ is the sound of exuberance and in its own little way it is making the world a better place to live in. Prepare yourselves for a spree of polyphonic ringtones inspired by the bands 3rd album ‘The Fragile Army’ in the near future (released 19th June). KD
