About:"...Perhaps the biggest surprise of all though is how classic it sounds, Cumming’s posturing sounding as if it’s been lifted straight from a forgotten vinyl covered in dust and suspicious stains. It’s Dire Straits teamed with louche New York cool – a combination that shouldn’t work, but totally does..." (http://www.nme.com)
