Wolf Gang - Suego Faults (Album review for Buzz magazine)

Words originally for Cardiff's Buzz magazine, and can be found in the July edition of the print magazine.

Wolf Gang ***

Suego Faults (Atlantic)

Two years since he burst onto the blogging scene and quickly established himself as an ‘exciting’ act, it’s fair to say that Max McElligott's debut album is long overdue. Much like his work to date – vibrant and explosive synth-heavy pop, all sparkly and golden psychedelia – it’ll be sufficiently pleasing to those already aware of his talents, even given the lengthy wait they’ve had to endure. It’s fun. But anyone with an opposition to the 80s – or cheese – should probably keep their distance.
