4/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 06 September 2012
What on earth is this? I can’t find a press release so I’m reviewing this one cold and listening to it isn’t getting me much warmer. Opener ‘Oceans Eye’ has quite a Britpop feel to it...in fact it’s reminding me a lot of (a really bland) Mansun, then ‘Bloodshake’ sounds like (a really bland) Vampire Weekend with Patrick Wolf singing, then there’s a ballad with “ooh-ooh” backing vocals and a “rousing” chorus. This is about as cutting edge as Snow Patrol.
Flip it and there’s a single track ‘1998 (Delicious)’, which starts promisingly a sinewy Om-esque bassline over shimmering guitar drones and white soul crooning but then they break into a Glasvegas drunken stomp with Edge-style simplistic delayed guitars and a (really bland) Godspeed-aping build-up which inexplicably takes us into a passage of Scissor Sisters-style camp discopop, ending on some soft-psych jamming. It’s a wildly diverse and somewhat ambitious track on one hand but the synthetic overproduced sheen and cloying delivery leave you with a pop band fabricated from all the leftover scraps of music people didn’t want over the past decade. Even robots don’t deserve this.
