‘Mistakes’ — The A.V. Club — Single review

Infectiously dreamy indie-pop, with its electronic grooves and typically sugary vocals, is a genre that nobody can really fault; it’s easy to listen to, well crafted and leaves you ready for more. And that’s just the style that suits Warrington-based outfit, The A.V. Club.

If The 1975, Fickle Friends, Swim Deep and even Phoenix are playlist winners, you’ll want to get into the angelic tunes of this phenomenal four-piece ASAP. Plus, after such praise from John Kennedy on Radio X and a string of pop bops in 2020, they know what they’re doing alright. And here to lay on a masterclass in silky synths, they’re back with ‘Mistakes’.

Focusing on feelings of regret and bittersweet flashbacks, this reflective release is eerily relatable. Toe-tapping ‘80s sounds are forged together with modern dynamism and technology, spawning a really catchy tune — and one that’s even more delightful at full volume. What’s more, The A.V. Club have grappled well with the Coronavirus limitations, first recording the demo for ‘Mistakes’ in a home studio setup ahead of producing it at Matchbox Studios for the final polish.
