THE LONG BLONDES CouplesThe five-piece indie rock group from Sheffield is back with their second album, Couples and they sound poppier, funkier, and more glam than ever. Front woman Kate Jackson's vocals dominate-she's everywhere.

That's especially true on lead single 'Centuries', a beautiful synth-pop ballad with a beat made for the dance floor. But some tracks, such as 'Round the Hairpin", don't quite work, it's too messy and convoluted, with lyrics that don't make sense ('our hearts were surplus organs' for example).

Overall though, the group hit more often than they miss on their sophomore release.
