Time to party like it’s 2004?

Label: Memphis Industries
Released: 19th January 2018
Rating: ★★★

The Go! Team burst into our lives as a Day-Glo riot of fun, a staple of the festival circuit and a guaranteed good-time band, perfect for shaking a leg like the world ain’t watching.

Press play on ‘Semicircle’, and it’s clear the party is still going even after 14 years. ‘All The Way Live’ is all tooting horns, sassy vocals and downright glee, perfectly fitting into the ‘school marching band gone rogue’ aesthetic that the band hinted at in the early days of recording.

The subtler moments are equally rewarding - ‘Chain Link Fence’ is a sugary number that has us wishing the lazy days of summer were a little closer, while ‘If There’s One Thing You Should Know’ skitters away like Arcade Fire decamped to Jamaica to soundtrack Animal Crossing, earnestly bashing a steel pan and cooing dreamy assurances that ‘it was you from the start.’
