With each new release, Staffordshire's Epic45 step up to the challenge of expanding their sound ever further. After a support stint with Hood and avid appreciation of the Bark Psychosis and Disco Inferno back catalogue, these influences appear to have rubbed off on the trio; making this their most confident-sounding record whilst retaining their essentially English sound. Thus, the title track begins with a huge drum sound before the dynamics are turned down to release some of the sweetest chiming guitar passages they have yet produced. 'Walk Led To Happiness' is even better; it posssess the familiar rustic atmosphere featured on previous outings but its stately pace and ambience bears comparisons with Bark Psychosis' 'Absent Friend'. A hypnotic piano figure provides the melodic undertow to the darker-flavoured 'Onwards As The World Sinks' but most of the time 'England Fallen Over' is surprisingly accessable and unafraid of a more popular style of melody. Finally and crucially, Epic45's distinctively innocent and nostalgic sound is still very much in the foreground.
