    Although Steeple is not entirely groundbreaking, it's not entirely safe either, as its fidgety temperament is remarkable enough to make anyone feel at home.

    Steeple is a big, old hairy beast capable of stirring the most primal of instincts. [Dec 2010, p.115]

    An exciting, evocative album. [Dec 2010, p.94]

    Just odd enough to escape period-piece pastiche, their deft weaving of different eras and styles makes them akin to a UK version of White Denim, and promises more exciting things from the future.

    At first listen, Tidings seemed more varied and adventurous than Steeple does. It had moments that hinted at pentatonic scales, exotic tastes of other worlds only compounded by the record's almost utter lack of focus.

    So if you want to thrash around your bedroom playing air guitar, pretending to be the rock star which you're never going to quite be, stick Steeple on and let the air guitar sessions begin.

    There are certainly things to enjoy here, but too often Steeple is searching for its soul. It's a soul that will probably forever be caught in a bygone time.
