“Umpire are an indie-rock band out of Perth that neatly balance their anthemic qualities with a bit of artistic depth. Their vocalist who I think is Simon Struthers recalls The Shins’ James Mercer with his clear and ringing high notes while the seamless intertwining of indie-rock, pop and prog sensibilities produces a sound that is both highly listenable and far from boring. I find I’m enjoying this quite a lot.”
