As an acoustic solo act, Barry Dolan always had noise in his heart. Now, Oxygen Thief has evolved to its second form, a raucous three-piece with guitars firmly plugged in and British alt rock/garage rock in their sights. ‘Accidents Do Not Happen, They Are Caused’, their latest mini-album, may whip by at a fair clip, but there’s enough good in here to suggest Dolan could abandon the Frank Turner-esque work and go distorted full-time.
