4/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 06 November 2012
Good lord, this is bonkers. I thought these guys would just be some indie band but instead I’m getting some kind of future-acid techno-rock apocalypse with hyperactive beats and full-voiced female vocals. It’s a whole mish-mash of indie-dance, glitch-hop and a hint of dubstep for a weird ADD club stomper that makes up in bold-faced lunacy what it lacks in taste. It sounds like Animal Collective, starved of Ritalin, covering an Alt-J song, so I guess it’s on trend at least.On the other side they take it down a little bit...but only a little bit. There’s weird processed washes of helium vocals, more very (some might say overly) busy beats. This one does have a breakdown at the end that hints at a haunty techno cool, but overall this projectile-splatter beat-making style is harshing my mellow I’m afraid. They’re trying very hard to be energetic and weird but listenability seems to have been sacrificed in the process.
