Drummer Sean St. James is co-lyricist with Drake, and each has a distinctive style; St. James being more literal and Drake figurative and poetic. Listening to Plum, a song in which sweet reminiscences are morphed into a delicate elegy for a deceased parent, it becomes evident that Drake is the stronger lyricist. Pity Sex
appear to be growing into themselves as a band and, with White Hot Moon, Drake appears to be getting pushed into a more front and centre position, which is not to say anyone is being upstaged but rather the band has identified their strengths and are ironing out the kinks in their sound and presentation. White Hot Moon cements Pity Sex’s position as a band to watch.
