A breath of fresh air in the world of talentless radio-pap
on 7 January 2014
Bought at a bargain £4 after buying the first album last year as it happens after hearing the 3rd track on the latest album 'Life Round Here' on the radio. Wasn't disappointed with either. Found the 1st album more challenging - needed repeated listenings before appreciating the unusual style (usually a good sign) which I find undefinable (strange that Amazon put the 1st album in the Electro pigeon-hole and the 2nd in the Pop category but I suppose they have to go somewhere !). On the 1st album the comparisons with Radiohead are understandable (Wim Mertens anyone?) but the 2nd album reaches out a little further to a wider audience with the excellent 'Take a fall for me' for instance.
Beautiful music which evokes all sorts of emotions (even if I do find it difficult at times to work out the lyrics) and a breath of fresh air in the polluted world of talentless radio-pap. If you're a Curious Orange - buy it!
