Album: Scouting For Girls, The Light Between Us (Epic)

This is, on the face of it, Scouting For Girls' break-up album. However, because SFG are the piano-led Top Man indie band whose lyrics are typified by rhymes such as "Summertime in the city, girls dress hot, boys go silly", there's not a lot in the way of emotional insight.

Roy Stride's idea of wistful yearning is "I want you back … naked!", his idea of nostalgia scrolling through "naughty" texts. This is music for the Keith Lemon demographic, and frankly, they deserve each other.
