For making the 2020 Mercury Prize Shortlist with a record that goes back to traditional ‘band in a room’ style recording methods. It captures the natural depths and dynamics of a band playing at the peak of their powers. A sound that goes against endless overdubs and the tricks of modern production to create a profound sense of intimacy and imediacy. A sound that truly brings the listener into the room with the band. ‘Among the burning forests and boiling oceans, it’s reassuring to know that raw beauty can still be found within the groove of vinyl, of which this–the Newcastle band’s fourth long-player–provides rich evidence.’ Record Collector, ‘Startling, shimmering and sharply defined’ MOJO, ‘A masterpiece’ Music OMH, ‘Absolutely Vital’ 9/10 The Line of Best Fit, ‘A fitting record of our times’ 9/10 God Is In The TV
