Awash in boy-girl harmonies and wry, sentimental lyricism, Scottish act Belle and Sebastian has been the reigning champion of twee-pop ever since the release of its sophomore album, If You're Feeling Sinister. Recently, frontman Stuart Murdoch changed the formula with bouyant comeback album Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance, brandishing synth-driven beats and dance floor aspirations. Collecting the band's most recent EP's, last year's How to Solve Our Human Problems, however, finds the band returning to its bedroom sentimentality. Expect both modes on display here.
