Album Review: The Maccabees - Marks To Prove It (2015 LP)

The English have always struggled at maintaining a forceful presence in the world. Gone is the Empire the sun never set on, Scotland tried to divorce them last year, their football team has never quite hit its straps and an Australian has been called on to try and fix the mess that was their national men’s cricket team. These aforementioned struggles aside, one thing the English have always been pretty good at doing it releasing quality music and with The Maccabees releasing their new album Marks To Prove It, maybe it is the marks of previous national failures that the band have definitely gone a long way to proving they’re still a force to be reckoned with.
