Wales: the new SoCal? Maybe that’s overstating it a bit, but there must be something in the water down Newport way. This 10-legged crew have won a fair few admirers in the short time they’ve been around – that this EP is being released on Adeline over in the States suggests SYB shouldn’t be placed in the same ‘cloying / hideous / argh’ bracket as former tour buddies Kids In Glass Houses – but there’s still some way to go. ‘I Am The Ticket’ and ‘Holy Shit! Fortune Teller Miracle Fish!’ show a melodic sensibility and maturity of songwriting that belies their youth, but ‘Not In The Mood For Kiwi’ and ‘You’ve Got Lizard Blood’ are phoned-in and altogether lazy.
