So with The Last Match theyve crafted an emotionally expansive world of near-perfect melodic, melancholic pop. Inside the bomp and bop of songs such as "Hit the Snow" and "Been Hiding," the band explores the aftermath of loves breakdown and breakup. Its sometimes funny ("Ill wear all black all day"), though rarely pretty ("And you lied and I lied"), because the Aislers Set also understands that music doesnt always have the answers or, at least, the right answers.
So when Linton sings, "Tell me something brave, tell me something kind" on the stunning title track, shes simply searching for the very thing we all are in music the courage to make it through another day.
