|Don't Delete the Kisses|
|I see the signs of a lifetime, you 'til I die And I'm swiftly out, I wish goodbye What if it's not meant for me? Love What if it's not meant for...||See the rest of the song lyrics|
Sep 26, 2017Visions of a Life is a phenomenal achievement. It has captured on record the thrill, angst, sadness and uncertainty of being in your twenties and not really knowing what’s going to happen or should happen. All of it is never anything less than intoxicating, heartfelt and effortless.
Sep 28, 2017Visions of a Life sees the band refine the exuberant jumble of dream-pop and grunge that characterised their debut My Love is Cool, while also finding new areas of exploration, from Drive soundtrack synthpop (Don’t Delete the Kisses) to snarling punk (Yuk Foo) and everything in between.

Despite being young these guys are somehow capable of creating exhilirating 90s nostalgia. I'm still trying to figure out how they do that while their sound remains completely their own - very authentic but blissfully familiar and warming all at once.
Heavenward is a REALLY fantastic song. Magically good. The kind of fantastic that feeds you euphoria all over by making you feel sorrowful and joyous at the same time.
Formidable Cool was a much-needed slap in the face (a really pleasant one might I add) to swat away any doubts I had as to whether this lot were lacking in edge. The guitar is mesmerising.
Supreme songs are 'Heavenward', 'Formidable Cool' and 'Don't Delete The Kisses'.… Expand

Oct 31, 2020This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. MAGIC! It cannot be summed up in another word!
This album is fascinating and the vocalist's voice is like an angel "choir". It has as premise several perspectives of a "life" as a point of view of someone who is learning. Don't delete the kisses is the elegance of the album, where you have a shy vision and that of a young woman who is looking for a way to love, even fearing fear.
Don't delete the kisses if it contradicts Formidable cool, giving another point of view about an ideal man - does it really exist?
The sweetness of the album is also in the middle of the album with "Space & Time", which is considered for sure, the "key piece" of this album, because it answers all my doubts: this young woman just needs time to try to recompose and give direction in your life.… Expand

The synth-like guitars and the spacious, atmospheric shoegazey vocals coming from Ellie elevate their sound even higher than their first album.
There are many fantastic songs here, starting off with Heavenward, a euphoric, loud and fantastic song that starts off the album by sending you flying through the skies. Don't Delete the Kisses, a favourite ever since it was released as a single, remains cinematic and soaring. That trend continues through the tracklist, staying in the spotlight until the last note drains out on Visions of a Life.
Faves: "Heavenward", "Don't Delete the Kisses", "Planet Hunter" and "Space & Time"… Expand

Sometimes it feels accelerated, with a rhythm really hyperactive and strange lyrics with no sense if you don't know why they where made for. But there are other songs that feel better structured, with better sound and lyrics. It's not a bad album, and of course you can feel a change from their first album, but it felt like half of the song try to say something, but it just can't finish to express it self. I guess that it lacks structure and solid essence.… Expand
Oct 11, 2021This is a tough one to describe. Parts of it are great, most of it is good and some of it is hard to recall for one reason or another. ThereThis is a tough one to describe. Parts of it are great, most of it is good and some of it is hard to recall for one reason or another. There is a wide mixture of sonic approaches across the album's 12 tracks and there is a definite lack of consistency from one track to the next. At times it feels disjointed but overall the listener is left aware that there is definite quality here. It is an album that I reckon I'll get more out of with further listens.… Expand
