8/10 Mike Staff review, 26 June 2012

These people are making some kind of synthy darkpop sounds on this record here. Judging by the press release they’ve been going for a while and developed a bit of a following but this is my first time in their company. Sometimes there is a boy singing and sometimes there’s a girl. There’s a bit of a pumping techno vibe going on in places, elsewhere more of a bleakwave kind of weirdness. Apparently there’s some kind of concept to it which I’ve not really had time to get to grips with but I think there is a narrative if you look for it.

They’ve got the sort of gothy side to them that makes them replace all their ‘U’s with ‘V’s. Penultimate track ‘Svmmer In Oslo’ has some crazy vocal processing like Dom from Runners uses which makes for a wonky and surreal listen, and when the bright and bouncy Saint Etienne-esque closer ‘Fog Machine’ follows it the effect is like waking from a trance. A little bit pedestrian in places but by and large enjoyable, understated synthpop times here.
