Freshly ejected from “the fountain of youth”, Leodensian duo Niagara aren’t messing about much by the sounds of their irreproachable PH EP, the highlight of which comes in the scruffy form of dizzying opening number, Death By Imagination. Dewy, airy and absolutely bursting with inspiration, it recalls Real Estate’s commensurately wonderful early days, its sublime three-and-a-bit encapsulating all the carefree joie de vivre of the New Jerseyites’ eponymous début. Smothered with gooey shoegaze, oozing an off-kilt kookiness and momentarily redolent of ’90s neo-psych stalwarts Blind Melon, it’s an exhaustive invitation to really fall for Niagara. And so when Lu Brown quizzes: “Should I even carry on?” the response is all but reactionary.
