    With Annual, Modern Nature prove that consistent, understated excellence comes naturally to them.

    Though Cooper has been at the music game for a while, his sense of interest in Modern Nature is tangible and it’s exciting to predict that his best work may still be ahead of him.

    While not quite as immediate or diverse as their full-length debut, Annual slots in nicely among their rapidly expanding body of work.

    Despite its misfires, the ambitious scale of Annual’s song suite is another step forward for a young group evolving at an unnaturally fast rate.

    Annual feels like a one-paced, indistinctive first step into a new world and one that is begging for just the odd about-turn to maintain interest.
