Fort Hope - ‘The Flood Flowers Volume 1’ Cover

Their debut album is finally here.

With hearts stitched to their sleeves and an array of earnest, immaculately polished choruses ready to go out and soar, this UK trio are finally unveiling their debut album.

It’s certainly an ambitious, sprawling piece of work; drawing on everything from the ornate arena bombast of Muse (‘Kaiser’) and intriguing, if undercooked synth-rock hybrids (‘Minor White’) to meatier, straight-up rock numbers.

In truth though, this is also an inconsistent affair – sometimes inspiring and assured, as on the massive ‘Dios Falso’, but increasingly bogged down in sentiment as the home strait approaches.

Still, there are just enough flashes of inspiration along the way to make it worth the journey.
