5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful 'pogonic' indie-clash 5 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
Both songs on this debut single from electronic rockers To My Boy live up to the hype created through their live performances and should be at the top of any indie-dance playlist this autumn.

I'd like to concentrate on giving you an idea of the velocity of To My Boy.

I Am X-Ray rides along on punky rails like the time travelling steam train from Back To The Future III. From the introductory 'blip - blip,' you're caught. Sam's edgy guitar riff and Jack's carefully timed staccato vocals ride over the bouncy synths and building beats. The Boy's refer to The Smiths as being their favourite ever band, as well as being struck by the romance of dance and electronic music. So, perhaps the best way to describe I Am X-Ray is to imagine an excited Morrisey returning to earth in a space suit, after spending the last two years at a rave...on the moon. Utterly thrilling to say the least.

Outerregions is Pop music, full of heart felt sympathy for us earthlings stuck in mundane office/classroom life. This is no normal, uninspired, B-Side offering. The duo are excited. Jack and Sam provide us with transport, via the beautiful machine, to a utopia, above and beyone our imaginations. It's probably got the same intergalactic postcode as the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem Leiji Matsumoto created for Daft Punk's Discovery album. It's a place for us all to save for those day dreams on wet Monday afternoons. Again Jack's careful vocals, strong and anthemic in places, feathery and poetic in others, fit perfectly and the digital horns play an undeniably catchy tune. The guitar work is used stratigecally and treat, what is largley an electronic setup, to a bit of indie.
