"There's light at the end of the tunnel/ There's fight at the heart of the struggle," Example muses on the intro of his latest single. It's a feeling he's all too familiar with, after finding success two years and two records ago following a disastrous debut album. Now equipped with his own well-established formula for chart success, the question is: is he willing to tinker with it?
If 'Close Enemies' is anything to go by, the answer is a firm no. "Your smile should have told me you're trouble," he half-sings over a menacing guitar riff and moody synths, before breaking out into a gloopy, dubsteppy and suitably epic chorus. The result, despite the whiff of alt-rock, largely sticks to his tried and tested methods - though it comes at a time when he should be doing just the opposite.
