Will this be another release that ultimately leads to nothing else like 'Idontknow' and 'Lifetime' though, that is the question laugh.gif (looking forward to it as with any other xx morsels anyway of course).

I wasn't massively feeling 'Romance With A Memory' but each single has improved on the last for me - the latest 'Hideous' is really hard-hitting.





(the impending album is called Hideous Bastard btw!)

Oof this thread never even being updated with the album title kink.gif

Just been listening to this anyway, 'Romance With A Memory' was really quite a weak lead single choice imo (although there is a remix of it by Midland which is a bop), the rest of the singles were better, especially 'Hideous' heart.gif Not a lot of new songs left as album tracks but 'Confident Man' is quite easily my standout from them, despite being the least streamed song on the album oops. 'Sensitive Child' and 'Unreliable Narrator' are good too although the latter is a bit too short.

Overall I rate it 'give us a new xx album already but this is alright in the mean time' x
