On disbanding Test-Icicles (a day-glo brat punk trio that everyone loved except the band members themselves) Rory Attwell formed RAT:ATT:AGG and later Kasms before becoming London’s most wanted DIY producer. And now he’s turned his hand to a new solo project called Warm Brains.

This time round he touches base at varying points along the ’90s spectrum – from the riffs of ‘Let Down’, straight out of ‘Leisure’-era Blur, via glimpses of Pavement-esque slacker charm to a kind of sweetened grunge (‘Rotunda’).

An(other) unexpectedly brilliant curveball. NME
