La Russo's "fourletterword" starts with a big surge of rising chords and ringing guitar. The song itself is an open, yearning melody. There are some good guitar band ideas locked into a firmly memorable bass line. Sad to relate, the whole thing is brought right down with a bump by Richard Miller's vocal track that, even to my dodgy ears, is way off being in tune. And after a great start, the production loses direction, meanders, nearly stops and ultimately gets lost. The quiet, lo-fi kind of section is very interesting and could be the heart of a really good track in its own right. But as it returns to the theme the vocal track just goes downhill.

Gigs in Leeds are coming up in August, and I would recommend attendance. While their single hasn't made my day any better than it was, there's plenty of evidence in it that the band are up to something worth hearing.
