“You had the experience, and the knowledge” Gothenburg four-piece Great Hare woefully intone on What Went Wrong? and themselves a mélange of once revered indie conies, you’d be forgiven for thinking they were self-effacingly writing themselves off in singing as such. Though with its wilting guitar lines immediately evocative of those fabled tones for which Alex Scally is now so widely famed (here think Myth) and its vocal an unassuming blend of Malkmus lethargy, Shout Out Louds’ understated whimpering and Owen Wilson-esque self-deprecation, its four, forty-six make for a quietly accomplished statement of intent. Not that they’ve grand designs to reconstruct the ligneous successes of Beach House or anything of the explicitly derivative sort, though experience and knowledge are here bred together to erect an outstanding monolith of melodramatic dream-pop.
