Jangly? Check. Beardy? Check. Harmonies? Check. Shirts? Checked. It's easy to see why this London-based six-piece are being hailed "the British Fleet Foxes".

Easy to see, but also wrong. From the power-pop burst of opener "King of Rome" to the lullaby-like closer "Boulevards", what Goldheart Assembly actually do is make hard-to-categorise pop music that festival mums and dads will love as much as boys and girls. They are, then, a sort of British Crowded House. But that won't sell as many records, now will it?
