    Deptford Goth - "The Lovers"

    Deptford Goth’s Life After Defo album from last year was slightly under-appreciated but absolutely excellent. On it he mixed his pop songwriting skills with a love of groggy, swirling electronics for an end product that was satisfying on the first listen or the fiftieth. "The Lovers" is the first single from his new album Songs is typically heartfelt and unashamedly emotional affair ("love stays, everything goes"), not straying too far from the template established on the first album, but with a richer, fuller sound—a mark of his increasing confidence maybe.—Constant Gardner
