ALBUM REVIEW BY KATIE HAWTHORNE.
PUBLISHED 06 JANUARY 2015; SCORE: ****
•   Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance might come as a surprise for some. It’s tough and brave and witty and warm–hearted — perhaps inevitable characteristics for a Belles album. But this, their ninth studio record, is the work of a band challenging themselves — it’s just as ambitious as any fresh–faced debut.
•   Lead single The Party Line is a perfectly placed calling card. Combining classic Stuart Murdoch lyrics of hearsay and anticipation with what is, in essence, a dance track, it’s a perfect reintroduction to the band come 2015. There’s a touch of house mixed up in there somewhere, too; a line perhaps nobody ever expected in a Belle and Sebastian review, but it’s bloody wonderful.
•   Girls in Peacetime is lovingly crafted, laced with embellishment and detail, and it’s full of unexpected twists: longer tracks like Enter Sylvia Plath and Play for Today are swelling and expansive, unfurling on to waxed, glitter–balled dance floors. The Everlasting Muse breaks into an rollicking big band march that comes to a halt as Murdoch challenges, “she says be popular, play pop.” By definition, it's no easy feat to write a disco track about Sylvia Plath, but Belle and Sebastian are more than equal to the task. :: http://www.theskinny.co.uk/
