Los Campesinos! sixth album, Sick Scenes, is the matured pop-punk record of a group who began as a Myspace band. The album floats effortlessly from the upbeat, anthemic instrumentation of “I Broke Up in Amarante” and “Here’s To The Fourth Time”, complete with singalong choruses, to the mellow acoustic sound of an emotional “The Fall of Home”. Los Campesinos! never stray from their characteristic indie rock/indie pop sound and mature song-writing that they have mastered on Sick Scenes.
