This is what you get when you put together a member of YCNI:M and Bloc Party...

When you stick members of two of the UK’s best and most progressive acts of recent times – Yourcodenameis:milo and Bloc Party – in a band it’s no surprise to hear the resulting record is a melting pot of compelling ideas executed with stunning precision. ‘Crisis Works’ is at base a heavy rock record, the likes of ‘Twin Victory’ an absolute whirlwind of crushing riffs. However, there are plenty of dynamics, tender moments and a definite through line of melody here too. The best example of this being ‘A Hole In The World’, a quite staggeringly beautiful track and contender for best song of the year.
