Having graced more “Albums You Must Hear” lists than many other revered long players, Haha Sound is vintage, retro-centric electronic pop that helped to establish Broadcast’s inimitable sound. Ominous Cloud, for example, is an archetypal Broadcast treasure.
Blissful, glowing compositions holding up the vacant melodies of Trish Keenan. Lunch Hour Pops is another blast of their idiosyncratic sound which reaches a spiralling climax on closer Hawk. Poetic lyricism, cinematic instrumentation and a constant undercarriage of life’s darker possibilities.
