- The Entire City by Gazelle Twin
8/10 Mike Staff review, 11 August 2011
Gazelle Twin is the alter-ego of Elizabeth Walling, who dresses up in wild and exotic costumes onstage and sings kinda Bjorky, Zola Jesusy minimal experimental pop music. It's really nice, too. The vocal harmonies have a real The Knife-esque quality to them (do they both use some kind of harmonising voice processor or something?) that's sitting very comfortably with me. It's certainly a record that wears its influences on its sleeve - Portishead's another obvious reference point here - but it's lovingly constructed and well produced and admirably restrained. There's no showboating in any department here, just distilled, glacial pop. She's got a dead pretty voice, too. Quite plaintive and wistful. It's great how minimal this record is, too. Nothing ever seems unnecessary. In 'Nest' the drums are programmed so slow they seem like more of a melodic ornament than a beat. I like it.
