6/10 Dave 28 October 2010

The new full length album from these guys sounds pretty sweet. It has shoegaze leanings and it reminds me of a more futuristic Velvet Underground. It has a massive dollop of goth splashed bleakness all over its pretty little face. There are quite a lot of things going on in this record. Some of it sounds unrelentingly bleak, but just when you start feeling guilty for not wearing enough black while listening to this dark opus your eyes are blinded by the occasional shafts of light coming at you from across the darkest of oceans. Like a welcoming beacon these lights guide you past turgid morbid songs and lighten the mood. It's refreshing when it's not a barrage of depression. The record sounds great though. Full and multi-layered production lends an impressive feel to proceedings and the vocals are inspired. I haven't watched the DVD yet but I can assume that it contains images of men and women in tight trousers and nail varnish mincing about in rain soaked cities with nothing to protect their honour but some white face paint and an iPod full of Robert Smith quotes. The kids are alright and they are donning big long black coats....
