Young Knives new album review (Evening Chronicle)

Young Knives – Ornaments From The Silver Arcade

Following their first two albums, which were released to critical acclaim. The latest offering from indie-rock trio Young Knives is a disappointment. Though It’s not to say the album doesn’t have its good points, Human Again, has a Kasabian-feel and rouses more energy than the rest of the album in a toe-tap inducing higher tempo number.  It’s an album which would have been seen as fashionably uncool if it were released around five or so years ago, but released now just doesn’t fit. Geek-chic with recycled synthesisers and awkward off beats, writhe and flex without ever hitting their usual highs. 6/10
