To be fair, I don't think it was their fault that people thought it was Brand New stuff. I was present in the Shone thread throughout and I said that I thought it was just a Brand New side-project, along with sources that said the same. People just seemed to refuse to believe it though, despite there being very little to say that it was anything other than a side-project. I'm not trying to say 'LOOK AT ME I WAS RIGHT', more that some people really just wanted to believe it was Brand New. If anyone went in the thread and said 'oh but surely it's not Brand New because of x and x', they'd just get a response along the lines of 'but thats what they want you to think'.
Saying all that though, I can't get used to Andrew's vocals whatsoever, and I really do wish I dug them more.
