The new rock powerhouses deliver yet again with ‘Comfort To Me’.
Making a habit of gaining fans of the likes of Liam Gallagher and Foo Fighters, and playing most major festivals from the last year, Amyl and the Sniffers remain hellbent on world domination. ‘Comfort To Me’ reaffirms this unrelenting drive of Amy Taylor and co. to pursue their pub rock revival to the highest heights they can, and there is no stopping them now.
The lightning-in-a-bottle songwriting and performances courtesy of Taylor remains the standout and she is simultaneously visceral yet remains personal through her magnetic personality and endearing stories of heartbreak and self-affirmation. The album shows her to be one of the most likeable figures in rock, and tracks like ‘Freaks to the Front’ and ‘I Don’t Need a C*** (Like You To Love Me)’ cement this.
For those familiar with the band, the sounds from their 2019 rocket fuel debut are still present in spades, but the big-budget production and newfound introspection offer a reason to give ‘Comfort To Me’ a spin, as it branches out into new sounds without isolating the initial fanbase, which is what a great sophomore record should do, and this does in spades.
‘Comfort To Me’ and the debut are both available in the Store now.
The band are also touring in August alongside playing Splendour in the Grass.
