Just Handshakes-Say It

After hearing lead single and opening track London Bound a while back I was left very excited to hear Just Handshakes full-length debut, Say It, and needless to say was not left disappointed.  There are some excellent vocal melodies on this record that feature heavily throughout especially on tracks like Kiwi.  The opening half of the record has a real poppy feel to it emphasised by Bright Lights and November a couple of gloriously understated tunes.  As the record progresses it starts to get a bit more of a retro feel to it as well as having a touch of a psychedelic sound on tracks like the brilliant Dead And Alive.  Say it is also full of bouncy indie pop riffs and fantastic synths as can be heard on Cut and Run and Signs.  Just handshakes wrap things up on the mellow Balmoralsumming up what a superb album Say It really is and how it would be virtually impossible to not find this infectious record instantly likeable.
