‘The Point of No Return’ is the fouth album on Bubblewrap from the teemingly fertile, alt-garage-pop mavericks My Name Is Ian, and their fifteenth overall. Tackling a typically diverse range of lyrical subject matter, The Point Of No Return casts its net over topics including the minimum wage, flowering plants, lizard people conspiracy theories, environmental destruction and the end of the world. Half-constructed around the left-field imaginings of Reginald Foxwell, the ever-burgeoning contributions from James Buzzanca (bass and guitar) and Joseph Coleby (drums and programming) bring with them a greater propensity for aural experimentation. The resultant twelve tracks deviate between torch-song cabaret, disco, punk, lo-fi and their trademark, soaring indie-pop, while also dipping ankles in shudderingly expansive instrumentals and subdued sonic ambience.
