Enough to warm the cockles of the bleakest midwinter, My Lost City rubberstamps the promise of debut The Days We Found The Sun with sighing choruses, skyward harmonies and more bounce than a beachball. Irresistibly swoonsome in a Teenage Fanclub vein. “For A Fool” is the Undertones'”Got To Have You Back” for the Thrills crowd; “First And Last” could easily come summer-raining from The Icicle Works’first album; “You Can Change The World” is sweeter than a New Seekers Pepsi ad. Bring me sunshine, indeed.
