S.C.U.M release their debut album Again Into Eyes on 12 September. A genuinely triumphant arrival, the album features ten stunning tracks that reel from glorious carnival-esque euphoria to a sound that occasionally flirts at melancholy and utter despair. Recorded in London with producers Ken and Jolyon Thomas the album sees the bands individual listening habits in psychedelia, space-rock, avant-garde and ambient soundtracks collide to form a pop trip that neatly balances the innovative with the rapturously danceable to great effect.
