Athlete – Twenty Four Hours – Single Review

by Lucie

Cute-as-a-button indie clan Athlete melt some hearts with this tune to brandish your lighter in the air to.
Their second album ‘Tourist’ breathed new life into the band, drawing a mixed reaction from the public with ‘Wires’, and then the heavier, happier ‘Half Light’. ‘Twenty Four Hours’ is a beautiful ballad with a distinct air of Englishness that lead singer Joel Potts maintains effortlessly, with not so much emotion that the single can be written off as overtly sappy, but just enough to make you appreciate each side of the Athlete coin. Awww, they’re just so lovely!
