Badwan possesses some of the most polished, uniquely British vocals in modern indie rock. What started as a brash, punk-drenched debut in 2007 with Strange House has evolved into a finely-crafted, post-punk, shoegaze-drenched sound with Primary Colours and now, Skying. As evidenced by the third track, "I Can See Through You," Badwan straddles the line between that brazen punk style of singing with a more subdued, airy method. He's not screaming over a two minute punk rager, yet there are subtle hints of that style still vaguely present in Badwan's vocals.
