These Nautical Miles
The second in a three EP series! 'When Quinzy released One Boy's Guide to the Moon in the summer, I wrote in these pages that the EP - the first in a series of three - was a tough act to follow. Happily, the second instalment has far surpassed my expectations. Unlike it's tight, punchy predecessor, These Nautical Miles is a big, roomy record, full of epic builds and atmospheric arrangements. With it's driving bass lines and sprawling, soaring choruses, this seven-song set showcases a band that isn't afraid to work outside it's three-minute pop/rock framework (see: the 10-minute Polywater). That said, this is hardly an unfocused outing - Fell In Love With The Enemy boasts one of the best melodic hooks I've heard in a while.' (A) - Jen Zoratti, Uptown Magazine.
