Transgressive – June 29th
As fun as I, Gemini was, it often resembled a debut that had a lot thrown at it with the hope something would stick. Whatever your feelings on that record, I’m All Ears is a confident next step, as Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth sharpen their effortless knack for a hook and return with shimmering pop smashes that bristle with identity.
If singles ‘Hot Pink’ and ‘It’s Not Just Me’ are stratospheric, ‘I Will Be Waiting’ is offbeat balladry in an enchanting Let’s Eat Grandma mould. Always a giddy live prospect, closing track ‘Donnie Darko’ has been stomping through sets for years, yet feels fleeting on record despite clocking in at over eleven minutes. Over far too quickly, much like I’m All Ears in general then.
