Lofter are a three piece from Sheffield and, following on from their 2016 debut album 'Raindrop', this four-track EP starts in easy going fashion with the breezy "Red Lion" which shows what the group can do with just two guitars, the interwoven harmonies of founder members Laurence Keith and Ant Clifford plus some unobtrusive percussion from Ben Cooper. The suitably intense "Tropical Cyclone Disaster" betrays the group's experimental leanings before the straightforward and undemanding "Fall Out" sees all involved back in familiar laidback acoustic territory. The closing track "Where Angels Sing" vaguely points towards spiritual matters and, thanks to some fine falsetto and the addition of some strings, is arguably the highlight of an EP that sounds pleasant enough but won't set the world on fire.
