Dangerous In Dalston,
This review is from: Whatever (Audio CD)
This Sarf London trio seem to be enjoying themselves immensely on their
debut album 'Whatever' (as in "Wha'evah") and there is little reason at all
why we should not enjoy ourselves along with them. Teeth make a racket (of
this be in no doubt!) but it is a well-formed racket which shows some evidence
of musical intelligence as well as eyeball and cerebellum crushing power.
When the synths spit out flames like a howitzer (as they do on the maddeningly
addictive 'Dead Boys') and "singer" Veronica So cranks up the energy with her
abrasive shouty-shouty vocal delivery the cave walls began to crumble!
She's quite a lass make no mistake but not necessarily one who it would be
sensible to take home to meet your Mother. She would probably eat the labrador!
There is little respite from the ten full-tilt electro nightmares on offer but
this is the band's raison d'etre so the best thing to do is submit and jump up
and down like a mad thing to it! (I did and Mrs Wolf thought me quite bonkers!)
A track by track dissection would not afford greater insight but suffice to say
that it is still possible to have a good time even when your ears are bleeding!
Don't say I didn't warn you!

Yeah I like this record. 31 minutes of highly enjoyable, crazy electro-riffing and non-stop, head-banging beats! Quite Crystal Castles-esque in places I thought - especially the vocal delivery! See Spaces is an amazing track.

Glad you like it too!
