'Flaws' is characterised by a delicate, heart-swelling beauty and lightness of touch throughout. Those that had BBC pegged merely as an indie band may need to re-think. Intricate, finger-picked guitar lines and ethereal melodies pull at the heart strings on new songs such as My God, the startlingly pretty Leaving Blues and title track Flaws. On other tracks – 'Rinse Me Down' and 'Many Ways' - skittering drum rhythms and distant banjo lines drift in, but in the main, it’s a naked intimacy that makes these songs dazzle. The album’s final track, 'Swansea', is perhaps the most exciting in terms of where BBC will take their sound next. All the music for 'Swansea' was written by Jack, but uses some of the lyrics from a Joanna Newsom track of the same name. A simple folk ballad that opens with plaintive guitar and vocals, swells and morphs into something altogether different, as a synth counter melody slowly floats into reverb-rich vocals and echo chamber drum rhythms.
