Laconic acoustically strum their way to something that feels like an indie Dido meeting David Gray. All 3 tracks are Radio 2 friendly and with their un-complex moody folk verse and swooping pop chorus formula there's little deviation from that well walked middle of the road path. Let's not kid ourselves it's a very financially sound route and though that is unlikely to be the bands main aim, this will never be short of an audience.
Opener "Waiting" is the strongest offering for the masses but "The Dream" has a little more character. Closer "Summer's here" sadly opens with some cheap lyrics which when repeated for the chorus masks a melody and song which is for this reviewer the band at their best: more Sundays than Dido, which can't be a bad thing!
Laconic will find a place and market with an older (dare I say female) crowd. Big pop producers could certainly turn this to their advantage.
