Now in their twenties, The Goon Sax’ malaise has settled in, and with that the acceptance that things don’t really pick up in adulthood.

Like most post-adolescents, they’re full of contradictions – on Make Time 4 Love Louis Forster sings of the importance of doing just that, while James Harrison laments on She Knows“I never knew what love meant and I still don’t.” Synths make a welcome appearance on Losing Myself, a sweet yet downbeat duet between Harrison and drummer Riley Jones. Despite living lives full of uncertainties, the band possess a remarkable assuredness. We’re Not Talking is further proof of the trio’s genius, and serves to show just how much they’ve grown as musicians.

We’re Not Talking is out September 14 via Chapter/Inertia.
