The 5th album from this 4-piece Irish band from Dublin was written in a rented house in Dingle and finds them getting in touch with their feminine side.
The video for the single We Couldn't Fake It has ballerinas cavorting around singer Danny O'Reilly as he lies fully dressed in a bath tub.
In a way this epitomizes the meticulously choreographed and politically correct emotional content of a record where sensitive romantic feelings take precedence over raw lust or desire. "My everything looks so much nicer with you in it" gushes O'Reilly in Give Me A Minute.
The album is optimistically described as a "sonic leap on from its predecessors" largely because of the greater prominence given to synths and organs. However, soaring indie guitars are still central to their brand of melodic arena pop.
This is a band who are "famed for their sing-alongs" and there are plenty of crowd pleasers to choose from in this new batch of songs.
On the downside, the lack of spontaneous excitement and pumping energy makes it all sound a little lethargic.
