    This works as both a confident and assured introduction as well as an ideal record for the long, hot days ahead.

    With the help of former Coral man Bill Ryder-Jones, Liverpool's We Are Catchers (aka Peter Jackson) has captured the melancholy essence of Beach Boy Dennis Wilson's solo album 'Pacific Ocean Blue' and distilled it in the murky Mersey to produce this confident debut.

    We Are Catchers lets you choose your level of engagement: listen to the pretty tunes or dig in and feel something. Either way, listening to the album is a treat and those who like their pop soft as clouds should find plenty to love.

    In many ways it’s a simple record, favouring technique over technology and to-the-point lyrics rather than those that miss the point completely.

    It occasionally goes Heartbeat but Jackson largely swerves pastiche with his knack for limpid romanticism and muzzy atmosphere. [May 2014, p.120]

    This has infinitely more charm than Kane, albeit with a very familiar love of a predictable lyrical couplet.
