Little beyond average; it feels like the songs just go nowhere.

Label: Domino
Released: 28th April 2017
Rating: ★★

South London trio Little Cub’s debut album is certainly an intriguing one; it promises of the bluster of big pop moments but boiling down to little beyond average. Opener ‘Too Much Love’ builds up with a New Order-esqe twang with a frustratingly catchy chorus which gives way to nothing. This is a recurring theme throughout the album where it feels like the songs just go nowhere.

At times it feels as if singer Dominic Gore’s voice is overpowered by the synths at times – particularly on ‘Breathing Space’. The album as a whole feels very much formulaic and can be boiled down to vaguely intelligent lyrics backed by a robotic band without purpose. Josh Williams
