With solid musicianship and an able- voiced frontman in James Morgan, the only thing holding back this well-produced Bahrain-based triad is their material, which generates an amiable glow but is continually plagued by superficial lyrics and hooks that don’t quite sink in. “Scared Like A Hero” is a decent slice of jangle-pop whose simplistic lyrics and overlong verses are a handicap. Best of the bunch is the Police- influenced “Positive Touch,” but just like the song “Lost” it ultimately flatlines and goes nowhere. Which brings up another area that the band should address: their arrangements neglect to build enough energy and drama that will take the listener to a higher, more compelling place.
