Review: Embrace - 'Embrace'

Review: Embrace – ‘Embrace’

Posted on 17 Apr 2014 at 6:25am

Back in 2006 – before the recession, bankers’ bonuses and a coalition government – England were looking forward to the World Cup in Germany and the band of the moment had ‘the world at their feet’.

Embrace, the five-piece Yorkshire outfit with Coldplay’s ability to churn out melodic pop-rock anthems but with a rawer, more authentic edge had just had their most productive year yet, giving some compelling elements to a year of everything English.

They had hit No. 2 with ‘Nature’s Law’, scored a number one album with ‘This New Day’ and had been asked to create the summer anthem that would propel England to World Cup glory.

World At Your Feet‘ did well in the charts but you suspected all along that Embrace’s hearts weren’t really in it. Now, at last, they have decided to poke their heads back above the parapet with a new album and tour.
