When the Cynics Stare Back From the Wall
"Belle and Sebastian hit the ground running in 2023 with new album Late Developers, released this Friday, January 13th. First single ‘I Don’t Know What You See In Me’ stands as one of the band’s most unabashedly infectious pop offerings to date, it is also their first co-write, featuring young pop composer Pete Ferguson.
Arriving almost back-to-back to 2022’s Top Ten album ‘A Bit of Previous’, ‘Late Developers’ comes on like its predecessor’s sun-kissed cousin. It is a full-hearted embrace of the band's brightest tendencies that is not only fresh and immediate but possessing of that Belle and Sebastian je ne sais quoi of a group that will always be there for you with the perfect word or melody for the moment, while admitting tunefully that “Every girl and boy / each one is a misery” (“When The Cynics Stare Back From The Wall”)."
