Make no mistake, this is an indie-pop album. If, like me, you are looking for something a bit more leftfield, you might want to reconsider. This is not to discourage though - a very fine indie-pop album it is, with instantly likeable melodies buoyed by constantly imaginative and tight production, laregely informed by electronica. 'One Step Inside' builds on inauspicious acoustic beginnings and builds into subtle layers of crackling electonic fug, underpinned by a wood-block rhythm. 'Pilot' is instantly recognisable, a piece of classic pop charged by a electro rhythm that surges and swoops in all the right places. Other highlights include the avant-pop of 'Trashing Days' and the cut-up violins and breakbeat of 'Solitaire'. Always engaging and accessible - each song is carefully crafted with a whole raft of styles and instruments (from flutes to banjos and neo-drum 'n' bass rhythmic stylings). But the focus tends to rest heavily on the vocals, a kind of Germanic Belle and Sebastien, sometimes a little high up in the mix for comfort. This, the German version, also features three instrumental bonus tracks - but these are more afterthoughts than fully-realised compositions. Like this?
