Athlete does just that with "Chances" on their sophomore record, Tourist. It's the kind of song England has way too many of in 2005, whether you're talking about the Buffseeds or rushes of blood to the head, but here's Athlete offering it anyway. Wires" pushes the melancholy even further. Joel Pott sings quietly to his sick infant child, and it's moving.

On Tourist, Athlete become radical neo-Britpop fundamentalists according to the gospel of "Trouble" and "The Scientist". At times they tell sob stories so terrifically upsetting that even their detractors have trouble keeping tears from jerking. The catalyst for this transformation was lead single "Wires", the stringy super-ballad leadman Joel Pott penned after his prematurely born daughter suffered from epileptic attacks. The final result is a safe cry-by-number, reproducible for a full album. Trending Now. Charli XCX Rates Virtual Reality, the Coffin Emoji and Pitchfork.
