So along comes the LP's second offering 'My Year Abroad' which could well see their popularity increase further, and quash any remarks about a juvenile or novelty aspect to their music. This single is a psych-pop treat that doesn't ask to be taken any more seriously, but it definitely will be. The quirkiness is still there but the song feels more grown-up and bigger all round. It's as if they've teamed up with The Horrors and tried to cram the aspects that have made both bands popular into a handy pocket-sized package. It's catchy as always, fun as always, yet here it feels like Race Horses mean business a little more than before, and 'My Year Abroad' should see their star rise further still.
