6/10 Clinton Staff review, 01 October 2010

Remember the 70's? Washed-out polaroids, Hillman Imps, Super 8 film, Kraftwerk appearing on Tomorrows World? Solar Bears do, and as such have constructed an album based around the then futuristic synth sounds, as used on terrifying childrens's television shows and adverts warning you of the dangers of entering electricity substations. The fact that this kind of noise was made on The Human League's wondrous 'Dignity of Labour' EP over 30 years ago doesn't invalidate this completely - the likes of Darts & Rocky Sharpe and the Replays replicated in the late 70's the sound of the 50's - although for an accurate comparison you'd have to find a 70's band willing to raid from the 1940's. All that said, if you have waltzed to some Boards of Canada tunes in your high school prom or driven down Sunset Boulevard to the sounds of Blue States in your youth you are going to find something here. File also alongside the Brummie likes of Seeland, Bibio, Telefunken and Plone.
