Single review – Cancel the Astronauts


Cancel the Astronauts -‘Seven Vices.’ (self-released)

Following on from their brilliant debut EP in 2009 – I Am The President Of Your Fanclub (And Last Night I Followed You Home) – and last year’s equally brilliant Funny For A Girl – here comes the third release from Edinburgh’s Cancel the Astronauts.

I know I’m not the only one who wishes that their material was a little more frequent, but when it arrives it feels like it’s been worth the wait. Over the course of the three tracks ‘Seven Vices’ ‘Something Approaching’ and ‘Playing Hard to Get’ the band continue to perfect their gorgeous anthemic indie-pop. What they continue to demonstrate is that if you are doing a release then every track should be worthwhile.

Another strong release from this band. No matter how long the wait for their next release, I’m sure it will be worth it. Surely the world should be theirs for the taking?
