8/10 Mike Staff review, 26 May 2011
North Carolina duo Ear Pwr craft densely textured synthpop with a combination of electronic and organic instruments and percussion. It's pretty good. The vocals kind of remind me of Toko Yasuda in their robustly melodic girlishness, and the synth lines often follow the same melody as the vocals, which gives it quite a queasy feel. Even though the sounds tend to be quite dense there's plenty of dynamic shifts and some really great analogue synth tones. There are plenty of reference points to be made, but it's hard to think of a single band these guys sound a lot like...Business Lady says they sound like a band from London called Plug, if that means anything to you. The expressive unison melodies and mid-paced grooves combined with the dense textures kind of remind me of some of the better anime soundtrack music. If you like analogue synths and easy grooves you can't go far wrong with this one really. The lyric booklet folds out into a poster that says "YOUR LIFE IS IMPORTANT" in massive letters, too, which is a nice sentiment to write in massive letters, isn't it.
