The Independent Culture

After an acclaimed debut which managed to balance the experimental with the saccharine, Everything Everything are making a grab for the mainstream second time around.

With its ever so slightly grating falsettos and R&B-influenced structures, Arc is built with daytime radio in mind as much as the indie disco. You can hear the words now, too. And, such is Jonathan Higgs' intelligent approach to lyricism, that word is perfectly likely to be "genuflecting".
