Second Album Syndrome; the words no band hopes to be tarred with, it hangs over like an ominous cloud of musical oppression. Many have faltered at this raw stage, but there are a few who; with slight trepidation, manage to overcome this barrier to success. Glenrothes guys Tango In The Attic are the latest band to clamber their way through the storm and emerge out the other side with Sellotape , a curiously upbeat take on pop music.

'Stitch' is fit to bursting with a mass of guitar ooze that is in places anarchic in its disorder until the four- piece remember that one of them should probably sing something. Enter the delightfully scruffy dulcet tones of vocalist Daniel Craig (insert witty James Bond related joke about tight swimming shorts here), illustrating a blend of sounds that take influence and tone from people like Alex Trimble from Two Door... if he started listening to Nirvana records in his garage.

'Alpaca' replaces the chaotic guitars of the opening track with a rhythmic stomp that fits in place perfectly with the Sahara like desert temperatures we’ve experienced this past week. TITA are turning up the Summer haze to 11 and giving hazy heroes Yuck a run for their money. A majority of the tracks from Sellotape feel like they were made to be enjoyed with a cider in hand at a small-scale local festival while you party your legs off with your closest friends. Apt then, for Tango In The Attic to name a track 'Suncream', but if the thought suddenly popped itself into your head that "what this band needs is an ode to safe skin!" think again.

Natural progression between tracks help make good albums great, and TITA's arrangement of starting upbeat and ending on an altogether more serious note on closer 'Family Sucks' is in no way a forced change. 'Family Sucks' brings to mind tracks such as 'Vomit' by Girls and a little bit of spirit that was floating around from the last Los Campesinos! record, but at no point during this record will it seem as though they have borrowed a little too much from other people.

While the overall sound of Sellotape is nothing ground-breakingly new, it definitely isn't a 'safe' record, and it plays to the strengths that Tango In The Attic have spent their four years together honing into something great.
