The Amazing - Wait For A Light To Come

This short EP from The Amazing, released in 2010, sees the band go a bit soft rock.  It opens with the busy folk of Evil, before leading into the sweet-sounding ballad And It Looks Like Today.  The track Islands is like a jazzy version of Nick Drake, with 10CC thrown in for good measure.  Languid electric guitar introduces Head Beaches, a kind of swooning, laid back song, and Defect sees them break out the guitars full throttle but makes little impression.

All in all, it's a bit too much on the soft side.  Pleasant, but little more.
