Totally agree with the previous reviewer - this EP is something a bit special, and takes atmospheric to a whole new dimension.
This is hard music to describe - there is definately a tip of the hat to some darker Pink Floyd, but with chord changes and rhythm more akin to The Verve, with an electronic twist similar to some songs from The XX, it's also almost like progressive house in some places. The WWII samples are really eerie, haunting voiceovers and the paradox of these voices from the past on very modern music works extremely well, and is a breath of fresh air in terms of originality and experimentation.
Stand out tracks for me are Spitfire and Dig for Victory - as the titles suggest, the whole EP has a War Theme. The song Spitfire starts off with the roar of a Merlin engine, which any Brit recognises becuase it is in their blood - there is a sample of a Spitfire Pilot talking to "Hunter Leader" on the radio, giving the position of approaching German Fighters, at the end he says "Can you see them, can you SEE them?! The tension and excitement of this exchange is palpable, and is greatly exentuated by a lift in key and increase in tempo right afterwards - just fantastic. Writing this does not do it justice - you have to listen to it, and you'll see what I mean
There is no doubt that this is an aquired (yet not too "far out" to be unaccesable) taste in music, but I personally have not heard anything of late that strikes such a chord. It's bizzarely really patriotic, yet some truly outstanding alternative music. I would definately, definately recommend this, and it will be interesting to see where the band go from here. As a debut, they have totally nailed it.
