8/10 Mike Staff review, 05 April 2012

This is a pretty cool record. Dunes are a trio who play quite minimalist indie pop with a strong '80s new wave meets new romantic sort of feel to it. Everything's swathed in that certain type of reverb that always brings those times flooding back with a skeletal post-punk feel to the compositions. Singer Stephanie Chan reminds me of Belinda Carlisle a little and there's shades of Joy Division and The Smiths and Echo & The Bunnymen in them there tones, that's for sure. In places there's a chorus effect on a slightly grunty bass that sounds well Cure-esque, too. I'm actually on my third time through this record now and although initially I wasn't grabbed by any of the melodies some of these tunes become real infectious and affecting after a couple of spins. In 'Shadows' there's an intro of chiming guitars and nonchalant spoken vocals that's well Sonic Youthy. It's a grower, that's for sure. Impressive combination of '80s tones and more current ('60s-influenced) indie sounds, with a deft knack for melodies that sneak up on you without you noticing like that amazing Total Control album did. Definitely worth a peek.
