This Danish collective went overground with 2014’s Too Many Roads; and this classy return should build the momentum. Risager’s voice is the trump card, whether on the lugubrious wee-small-hours moan of I Used To Love You or the acetate twang of Holler ‘N’ Moan. And with the pulsing Train they might have a signature tune.
