Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly - Searching for the Hows and Whys

Like the perfectly adjusted model kid who sits with his hands folded in the corner. Only problem is, you might just forget that he's there

Album Review by Paul Neeson | 06 Mar 2008
  • Searching for the Hows and Whys
Album title: Searching for the Hows and Whys
Artist: Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly
Label: Atlantic
Sam Duckworth's debut - The Chronicles of a Bohemian Teenager - quietly excused itself, brushing past the rough boys of 2006 into several of the year's top 100 album lists. Two years on, Duckworth returns with Searching for the Hows and Whys, once again raising his hand and politely requesting some attention. Without exception, each and every moment of Searching… is entirely likeable. It's a gentle album, and beyond the serious commentary of Build You a Tower, which tackles the current political unrest between Eastern and Western cultures, the hows and whys revolve around the wistful wonderings of the everyday, and for a time, with it's richly textured, highly-shined indie-pop, it proves a good place to be. Though being entirely without controversy, there's little to inspire comment or flare real emotion. Like the perfectly adjusted model kid who sits with his hands folded in the corner. Only problem is, you might just forget that he's there. [Paul Neeson]
