Playfulness tethered, cosmopolitan breeziness in its place, it’s the ease in which the buoyant songs don’t try too hard that wins you over. The point of summer being, of course, not trying too hard. Whatever pop vein Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs tap for surplus, it’s always favored lilt, and no matter how bluish-grey the hues get, every time Sarah Cracknell opens her mouth, she always lets the sunshine in.
