    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Recorded late 2014 in the misty hills of mid-Wales with Gethin Pearson (The Enemy / Chain of Flowers), the album builds on last year’s debut, The Lovin’ EP.
    Like all the best pop they aren’t afraid to sing unashamedly about love; exhilaration and anxiety of being in love, realising what you have but being scared to lose it. lyrically, Arnos Vale focuses on the short n' sweet. If you’re already acquainted expect more of the same; a no-frills, chorus-and-riff-heavy power pop record! Influenced heavily by the 1990s US indie rock scene, Personal Best take cues from the likes of Superchunk, The Lemonheads & Sleater Kinney, to create a dynamic and hook filled album.

1.
The Mission 00:37
All of my pain It’s gotta be worth something It’s gotta be worth something to you All of my shame It’s gotta be worth something It’s gotta be worth something to you
2.
I’ve noticed that you can’t resist Turning happiness into shit Something that you like to do Is make it all about you Here’s what you should do If you meet someone in love then wish them well You think you know better than me Could it be that possibly You’re not a man that’s just outta luck You’re nothing but a bitter old fuck
3.
I’m paying for something I did a long long time ago Something I did before I met you You complain about something that doesn’t matter anymore Is what we got not enough for you? Love is on your side So now we’ve got something that’s a little bit in-between There’s something I wish that you could see
4.
Poor Old You 02:21
Rip the pages off your calendar You watch the action like a bystander And while we’re out messing with space and time You wash your hands off in the snow Poor old you You never thought we really cared did you? Although you never meant that much to us At least you’re someone we can always trust ‘Cos while we’re out messing with space and time You wash your hands off in the snow
5.
It’s too rough around here to hold hands with you my dear I wanna kiss you in the street Where everyone can see ‘Cos this is what we look like
6.
Gone 02:39
I’m not like you but I’m like me And I can love without hostility I saw myself like someone else might see me from afar I saw myself like someone else She so wanted to be gone How do you know when you’re not yourself? What does it feel like when you’re not being yourself? You saw yourself like someone else might see you from afar You saw yourself like someone else You so wanted to be gone
7.
You wake up late You don’t wanna go to work today Would it make things better If I let you wear my brand new sweater You missed the bus You gotta walk ‘cos you missed the bus
8.
Though I said I’d always make you smile Well I can’t and Though you thought I’d go after a while I’m still here I know that I keep saying Everything will be ok then Everything will all work out This time next year I know I won’t be the one to fail Fail you ‘Cos darling I know what love entails And how to stay true
9.
Human Nature 01:05
There is no such thing as unnatural There is no such thing as abnormal And if someone says you are unnatural You should tell them to fuck off ‘Cos if you can do it then it’s human nature If you wanna do it then it’s human nature
10.
You’ve got a million books but you haven’t read them all I’ve only got one guitar but I know every chord If you think that doesn’t matter Then I don’t think that we can be friends Beauty is terror ‘Cos you’re beautiful and I’m so scared of you You never liked me much but I don’t think that I care I’ve got the best story now I can see you lying there If you think that doesn’t matter Then I don’t think that we can be friends
