Which Bitch? review

It’s two years since The View’s last album, Hats Off to the Buskers, and the band maintains its linear progression, following on along post-Libertines lines with lots of witty observations, music hall ditties and crashing, reverbed guitars and street smart rock to capture the imagination of even the most jaded listener.

The band continues to pull songs into the most strange of shapes with fantastic success.

Horns, strings and woodwind are reminiscent of Sergeant Pepper, while Falconer’s soulful, untamed voice is a joy to behold.

I was expecting to hate this, but came away brimming with admiration for Which Bitch and its vibrant, hedonistic songs.

First class.
