Worth checking out!,
This review is from: Again Into Eyes (Audio CD)
If you are into synth laden,moody indie that is catchy and mysterious,you are likely to enjoy this.Caught the band at Exeter Phoenix a couple of weeks ago on the first leg of their NME tour,on the reccommendation of my teenage son.Very enjoyable gig,clearly a band who have a strong musical direction,the performance was charismatic and powerful and compentently played-the songs interesting and memorable.Naturally I have borrowed my sons copy of the album,which sounds remarkedly like the live performance,it has become compulsive listening.Influences? sounds both live and recorded are reminiscent of Nick cave,Suede through to Eno.Talked to the band afterwards-really nice bunch of guys (and girl)asked them about their influences,and they seemed non-plussed,only mentioning Echo and the Bunnymen.Will stick my neck out and say it's one of the best indie type albums of the year.Great stuff.
