8/10 Brian Staff review, 22 October 2009
The Fatales: I'm unsure of where these fellas hail from (I get the feeling they may be French Canadian?) but they've a studious, commercial leaning sound that hoovers up influences from windswept 80's AOR pop such as The Blue Nile taking in smooth, epic, contemporary Euro post-rock ala Jeniferever/Diefenbach and mild elements of broody early 80's new wave/"overcoat rock". They sound incredibly accomplished and are maybe already at the comfortable juncture where White Lies fantasize of being in 5 years time. It does start to resemble a tougher version of a-ha on a couple of tracks but their impressive banks of atmospheric synth and clean, rumbling bass keep it sounding reasonably strong & fresh. I actually love the chamber interval 'You're Not the Lunar Type' and they also enjoy fiddling around with some electronic glitch to get that Postal Service feel. 'Great Surround' is on Monopsone and is well worth a punt if you like yr indie mature, dramatic & melodic.
