"It's A Shame" was nice, not really feeling "Postcard" so far

Asked for this to be moved into the county topic. Not sure how I will feel about this album. I dislike both new songs but Stay Gold was so good :(

'Fireworks' is my favourite song from the era so far.
It's really good :)

The album is out now!

Just had my first listen and it's good, very cohesive, which is not a surprise though. But i have to say that it's so much behind "Stay Gold" for me, something is missing here. All songs are fine/good but none of them really stand out. I guess i'd even pick "It's A Shame" as my fave right now.

I was expecting to be disappointed by this and whilst their past two albums are better I’m pleasantly surprised! It’s really strong on a first listen and will definitely be a grower :D Rebel Heart and Fireworks are the best songs for sure.

Fireworks is very sweet, I'll give this one a go. The singles are def less radio-friendly than the Stay Gold stuff, but the album could make a nice whole

Heard Distant Star on Spotify yesterday (it's on their New Music Playlist) and I loved it.
