If popular journalism is to believed then the future of indie guitar rock lies in young upstarts such as Hundred Reasons or Lostprophets. In all honesty groups such as these offer little but light relief for the highly lucrative teenage angst market. On their debut album Haven aim a little higher, with half of this album being satisfying on more than one level. Allied with some intricate guitar playing is Gary Briggs's impressive vocal register; both attributes comparable to the soon-to-be reactivated Puressence. First single 'Say Something' inclined towards safe Coldplay/Travis territory, but the next single 'Til The End' and also 'Out Of Reach' proved them to be purveyors of intense, melodic guitar music. Just as the album seems to descend towards a rather pedestrian ending 'Is This Bliss' and 'Keep On Giving In' lead to a quietly impressive finale. With a couple of possible directions open to them after this album, it will be interesting to see which route Haven choose to travel next.
