A new double A-side from Ciccone is always welcome; especially when it shows off opposing sides of their songwriting range. The riotously confrontational ‘My Summer Never Comes’ that is only tempered by its reflective chorus, is a jagged little gem. Mickey has taken the vocal lead for it and it is the emphasis he places on each word that gives the song a rebellious edge.

Flipping over to the other A-side there is the exposed fragility of ‘Last Breath’ which manages to be tender and strong simultaneously. There is a likeness in the broken delicacy of Rebekah’s vocals to Drugstore’s Isabel Monteiro. Both of these tracks are taken from Ciccone’s debut album ‘Eversholt Street’.
