  2. 8.0 |   The Quietus

    The sound is accomplished and fully formed, with the steady hand of the Deerhunter producer Nicolas Vernhes at the controls; a band whose own blend of fuzzy psychedelia, shoegaze and krautrock is a fair reference point for much of Dromes

  4. 8.0 |   Under The Radar

    A fully-fledged live band whose gentle psychedelia-infused rock has been compared to the likes of cult '80s dream poppers Felt and '90s titans of shoegaze Ride

  5. 7.5 |   The 405

    Dromes is self-assured, brave and focussed, filled with plenty to sink your teeth into and discover new layers across multiple listens

  6. 7.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    An album that clearly reflects the listening habits of its makers. Derivative? No, like all bands they have their influences, but Younghusband know how to use them as a base to build their own glorious noise upon

  9. 6.0 |   The Skinny

    Synths, drums, bass and guitar are arranged with studied scruffiness by Deerhunter / Wild Nothing producer Nicolas Vernhes, making for a solid debut

  10. 6.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    There’s a fine line between spaced out and plain lethargic, and barring the title track, which builds up into something layered and epic, Younghusband drift guilelessly over that line a few too many times
