Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2015-06-22 
From London: epic power pop, drinking from the well of 70's Stranglers, Knack. Guys playing guitar bass drums and a touch of 70's new wave punk organ. But it's centered on the vocals: melody driven, subtle harmonies, songs feel like epic drunken pub singalongs. Appropriate that the cd starts w a snippet of one. The English'ness of such singing styles really shines through (and maybe thats what typified so much early English punk?). Great stuff fits w a garage set or an indie rock too.

1) (0:23) low fi pub singing
2)* (3:09) epic upbeat power pop, catchy, only needs handclaps
3)* (2:04) pounding driving feel
4) (3:28) slower swingy, chance to take a breath
5) (4:10) slower, a love song?
6) (3:00) upbeat organ driven goes halftime swing in middle then picks up again
7) FCC (great forlorn love song with one Fuck, safe harbor)
8) (4:26) another waltz but dark and swingy
9)* (2:28) upbeat bouncing in your seat!
10) (2:57) swingy bouncy
11)* (4:59) chill organ to start then a big plodding feel a huge epic soaring vocal melody, picks up rockin in middle briefly, then back and forth
12) (3:10) a simple pretty song wo drums
13) (3:27) midpaced strummy simple 3 chord, very English feeling
