You could be forgiven for thinking that you have heard Further before - for two reasons. Firstly, you probably have: it's a re-release, which is being unleashed back onto the British public after it died on its arse a couple of years ago. The second reason is that Long-View sound like some evil mutant offspring of every boring indie band around at the moment.
It starts off with a floaty guitar riff, typical of the singalong guitar bands for boring people who ritually produce the kind of music that sits proudly on the supermarket shelf next to your spuds. It gets worse: the chorus is predictably catchy, and there's a choir or something, obviously shunned by lottery funding and having to resort to making banal bands look musically "diverse". The whole track is held together by a chugging rhythm that plods on through the longest three and a half minutes of your life.
Perhaps the worst bit is that some people will describe Further as "epic", or something similar, which couldn't be further from the truth. Expect Long-View's spectacularly dull music to be catapulted into the charts and afternoon festival slots sometime soon. Just do your best to ignore them.
