9/10 Brian Staff review, 11 September 2008
The French Quarter are a cool new Scots act and we've got their wonderful debut 'We're Not French' EP in on CD. I don't quite know how they manage to so brilliantly blend brittle new wave with early Explosions ITS style post rock drama - track 2 is very much in that style, all marching drums & hypnotic guitar building up to a buzzing little crescendo - and latter (evocative) period Dischord Records but they do, so well! Each track has this airy, sparse aura, a clean, refined sound that seems really refreshing. It's linear, minimal rock which at a stretch could be imagined as a marriage of Interpol & Pinback but the template here is merely streaked with some pleasing pastels at the moment, it's early days & they've kept it simple, drawing these 7 songs out tentatively. Impregnable, drifty vocals hover over pure chiming guitars, dense drums & looming bass and on some there's sweet strings and piano flourishes - there's plenty of space left beyond these tender atmospherics for this promising band to go WHEREVER they feel next! The closing track is a euphoric spacey number that wraps up an excellent debut effort. I strongly recommend this!!
