Clinic are back! And I mean that in every way. The new album stands solidly with the brilliance of their first two releases. They’ve tinkered with their instrumentation and songwriting—strings, acoustic guitar, and general poppy-ness—and I think it’s provided a new energy that the band has sorely needed. It’s one on my favorites of the year so far. So take a listen, and just try and get the bubblegum unstuck from your mind.
