Which Bitch? review

Rating 8/10

Dundee's favourite scamps are back with the follow-up to their hugely-popular debut, Hats Off To The Buskers. While lead single 5 Rebeccas failed to set the charts alight like the tunes of old, Which Bitch? sees the band pushing their boundaries to mostly pleasing effect. Strings waft their way through Unexpected and Distant Doubloon, while pianos and harmonicas have also been added in places to complement their familiar scruffy sound. Paolo Nutini combines brilliantly with lead singer Kyle Falconer on stand-out track Covers. Despite lacking any obvious hits, The View have proved they can still mix it with the best of 'em.
