The Optimist LP.

The Optimist is by turns delicate, impassioned, wistful, and androgynous. The lyrics come at the listener indirectly, quite a few of them refer to relationships in an angsty manner, and there are oblique ecological and anti-corporate references. It's as if After the Gold Rush (with its silver space ships) and the films The Man Who Fell to Earth and Bladerunner have all been put in a blender.

On the album, they’re sharper, more focused, but it’s still an emotionally exhausting ride. Olly is blessed with a voice which can harshly twang and softly croon, often simultaneously, can register naivety and crushing world-weariness in the same phrase. The nuance of the line making me breathe again in stand-out ‘Emergency 72’ is enough to break your heart. It’s moments like that which endear you to Turin Brakes. The gentle strings in ‘Feeling Oblivion’. The gorgeous chime of Paradganian’s slide guitar on ‘The Door’.
