Killing Fields Of Ontario, first of all, are not from Ontario, or even Canada. More importantly, they most likely do not enjoy participating in, or advocate in anyway, the killing of people in fields, or anywhere else for the matter. Hailing from various parts of England, they seem to draw numerous comparisons to their counterparts north of the border, Frightened Rabbit – and whilst there are some similarities to be found, it’d be an injustice to leave it there. Brimming with that “warm your cockles” sincerity, and “you want to cry” angst, ‘How The World Ends’ is more than just its preceding tracks such as ‘Cloud’ and ‘Our Place To Drown’. The epic proportions of the penultimate and title tracks, clocking in at over seven minutes, really demands your attention with its sweet soundscapes. This then segues into the charming ‘God Or Country’ to gently finish things off with a soaring guitar line a generous reminder of the distant ferocity of opener ‘Twisted Little Theatre’. Reigning back in that Frightened Rabbit comparison, it took the Selkirk lads a few cracks at the album thing to make it, hopefully ‘How The World Ends’ will be Killing Fields bite at the sweet, sweet apple – and it would be rightfully deserved on such a rounded and enjoyable record.
