Tracklist: Japanese Sleepers - These Are Our End Times

A kind of collective pop melancholia is what the Nottingham/Sheffield relative newbies and Thee SPC signings Japanese Sleepers indulge in, layering group shouts, violin-led swayalongs and burbling synths atop each other without crowding any of the central faux-joy out. These Are Our End Times, from their current debut EP Little Victories (which has been out for a few weeks but, well, stuff's happened), is as expansive and emotive as they get thus far, nagglingly familiar melodies and builds-to-breakdowns lovingly arranged.
