The Following Announcement - Jenny EP

The Following Announcement follow up last year’s In Secret Places album with EP Jenny after a heavy year of touring. Pop punk can be great fun and this Bristol trio have certainly supported acts with great stage reputations such as The Ataris and Futures, but it takes sympathetic treatment on a recording to bring it alive. The songs themselves on this release are all as you’d expect and bounce along like spacehoppers but they lose too much verve to over-production; it’s hard to say if the group were becoming more comfortable with the studio or trying to be too clever, but a more basic approach would have given birth to a much livelier sound. The one track that does gain from all this is the acoustic version of ‘Jenny’ with keyboards replacing drums and the guitars panning across the speakers, which provides an altogether surprisingly fine finish to what was otherwise a slightly humdrum experience.
