We loved Heavyball’s 2015 debut Black Eye Diaries. It dominated the office that summer and we’ve been waiting to see what they do next. Now we need wonder no more.
The follow-up is When Can You Start? and, as a whole piece, recounts a week in the life of an ordinary office worker. It’s just a normal week in the life of an everyman, with the one slight and unexpected twist of it being his last week on earth.
Individually, it’s packed full of great tunes in the ‘new tone’ style of indie-ska with which they pricked ears up on the first album. Storytelling, humour and everyday observations wrapped up in sharp melodies. What’s not to love?
