No artist has held me captive for more than two albums since the Spice Girls, so I wasn't sure what to expect from Scouting for Girls' new album, The Light Between Us.
I've always been a fan of Scouting for Girls since their eponymous debut album, and never before have I so keenly awaited a new album release, damaging my already precarious bank balance by pre-ordering the album and buying tour tickets in the same week.
Within a few seconds of putting the album on, the unmistakable sound of SFG was there. The Light Between Us has as many tongue in cheek lyrics as other albums, which Scouting for Girls are known for (however, nothing quite as good as "Posh girls have good manners but they go like the clappers coz they never got to hang around with boys in school" from the second album.
Many of the songs have a more mature feel than the previous two albums, yet they still remain as anti- high brow as ever. Catchiest song has to be Summertime in the City, but after a few listens, it's as if SFG have never been away.
Tour review to follow. Bring on the fourth album.
