Welsh post-hardcore outfit well and truly up their game.
(Bridge Nine)

While they have a bevy of releases behind them, ‘Rain’ is Goodtime Boys’ first full-length, and the longer running time has allowed the already-accomplished band to well and truly stretch their wings as they serve up a tour de force of hearts-on-sleeves emotion and musical dexterity. From the urgent hardcore blast of ‘Hypocrisy’ to expansive closer ‘Downpour’, this is a gripping, tumultuous and impressively focused listen that firmly places them in the upper echelons of the post-hardcore scene, alongside lauded contemporaries like Touché Amoré.
