Rather than this ‘pt. II’ being the second half of a two-album epic along the lines of what Foals have dished up this year or we’re expecting from The 1975 come February, it’s simply the second half of The Ninth Wave’s debut album ‘Infancy’; the literal B-side to its ‘pt. I’, released earlier this year. It makes for a strange listen: physically, it’ll be alongside its older sibling as one unit, so while yes, the mood the group crafted first time around continues apace, it’s also a bit like being given only the second half of a book, or entering the cinema half way through a film. Elements make sense - and in ‘Infancy pt. II’’s instance that definitely means the sprawling, bleak ‘Unspoken’ - but the whole thing can’t help but beg the question - why?.
