Candidate - Taking on the Enemy's Sound
North London's Candidate are indie romantics, burdened with a rueful sense that they may be destined never to reach the fast-moving waters of the pop mainstream. At times their attitude borders on defeatism; "It won't work--but I can say I was there," is among their adages on the sleeve of Taking On The Enemy's Sound. If they are under-achievers, however, they are ultimately proud of it. "The Great American Starving Band" is their ironic tribute to all of those wonderful transatlantic combos doomed to commercial failure, who briefly waft across the rock terrain like tumbleweed, unheard of again. Nor do Candidate take refuge in lo-fi mediocrity or miserabilism. Joel Morriss's wavering vocals rise to almost epic, Scott Walker-like heights on "Somerset", and "Swim Home" is a defiant, look-ma-made-it-to-the-top-of-the-world song scenario. Musically, the odd guitar tunings of "Load It All On Me" and the varied use of acoustic instrumentation are enough to offset any threatening clouds of indie tedium. --David Stubbs
Top Customer Reviews
It's a nice, gentle, floaty sound - the almost obligatory late nineties/early noughties soft-sounding voice and twangy, lilting guitars are there. The first few tracks are good (the apparent pitch-bending on "Load it All on Me" is particularly pleasant) and it kind of tails off after that. Not great, but worth having if you like that sort of thing, I suppose.
