“...At times, The New Life feels like a concept. The sound of isolation and despair. Even visually mirrored and depicted by Rob Peart's monochrome sleeve photo. If Cathal Cully's aim was to leave the past behind then he's succeeded resoundingly, and created one of this year's most ungainly beautiful records in the process." (

"...‘The New Life’ charts the band’s expansion from macabre garage rockers to full-blown goth act. Draped in Cully’s spectral baritone, ‘Drawing Lines’ is The Wipers reduced to an ominous shimmer, while ‘A Second Skin’ pits vampiric downstrokes against terror-speeding arpeggios. It’s their death-obsessed garage rock writ panoramic – the sound inching on ‘Hypnotic Regression’ towards the bombast of mid-’80s stadium goth. Crucially, though, they never concede to caricature. That’s because ‘The New Life’ is about real life, laid bare. Austere and mistrusting of dark fairy tales, this is goth with a post-punk soul."  (Read more:
