    Doyle shines as a singer and lyricist. [Dec 2014, p.78]

    The lyrics can spill into the realm of over-earnestness at points, but overall this is slick and dancefloor-ready.

    Despite the solid highs, there’s nothing truly spectacular and the end result is rather uneven in terms of quality.

    What distinguishes New Build is their lyrical inner monologue, which speaks of a reflective mind given to philosophical enquiry. [Dec 2014, p.114]

    Overall, it misses Hot Chip’s outsider appeal completely, coming off as whingey and middle aged. Don’t bother.
