Any love for this British act that apparently some in the UK think are French?

Just got their new album Controlling Crowds and I think this is their strongest effort to date. This is cinematically scoped music that reminds me of latter day Massive Attack but with exquisite songwriting. The new album is just this almost too lush of an affair (lots of tunes augmented by orchestral arrangements) but there is still quite a lot of analog power going on as well and a good dose of guitarcrunching.

Oooh, good find. Looking forward to giving them a proper listen when the wife's not asleep next to me...
I was a victim of goose-flirting the other day.
This bleeding great goose came up to me and wanted a light.
I said no.
Goose, there\'ll be no flirting today.
