‘Perhaps, then, Sun Gangs is less a break-up record, and more a ‘relationship’ record, in that it has the ups and downs of a love affair, with moments of joy, boredom, and viciousness sandwiched in closely next to each other. And while that makes for a challenging and complex listen– Andrews has certainly proved to be adept at wringing bitterness or misanthropy from bruised melodies– one can’t help but hope that his next relationship is a happy one. For Sun Gangs’ biggest surprise is that Andrews sounds lovely sounding lovely.’
