The second album 'Too' (Glass) was highly praised in the now-defunct 'Sounds' and 'ZigZag'. Their single 'Your Heaven Scent' was hailed 'Single of the Month' in ZigZag. Supporting The Style Council at the Apollo Theatre in Coventry, In Em-brace recruited a full-time drummer in Joby Palmer (Pre-Eyeless In Gaza) and Stephen Rees (ex-Tuffs) on bass, whereas Formby was replaced by Clive Dove (also ex-Tuffs). They emerged on Cherry Red Records with a final Knight/Formby song, 'Shouting in Cafes'.
Next came their most widely-known song -'This Brilliant Evening'- their only track still available on CD on 'Ambition - The Cherry Red Story'. Multi-instrumentalist Peter Becker of Eyeless In Gaza then joined the band for their subsequent performing and recording sessions. Major support dates with The Housemartins and Carmel followed before In Embrace returned to Glass Records with two new singles: 'A Room Upstairs' and 'What's Got into Me?'. The band dissolved for financial problems, whereas their last album, 1987's 'Songs About Snogging', remains unreleased to this day.
