6/10 Clinton Staff review, 05 April 2013

I’ve done my own Remote Viewing recently trawling through the back catalogue of Haslingdon’s finest electronic duo Remote Viewer. But enough about my weird nocturnal habits, this is a very different beast. Produced by Human League producer Stephen Hague, it features slabs of Scandinavian sounding synthpop which occasionally hit the mark.

The press release drops all the right names in the right places but alas the music doesn’t live up to the cool underground types that are quoted as influences. This is a much more commercially focused record than artistically interesting, the nearest comparison would possibly be School of Seven Bells. The synths are squelchy and digital, the vocals sound like Claire Grogan. ‘Sentimental Games’ is the obvious “hit” and has a nice dreamy chorus, the title track has the drum beat from New Order’s ‘True Faith’ but no melody to match. I’m reminded of the mysteriously hip ‘80s synth pop of the likes of Stairlift but otherwise it flits by in a mesh of indistinct keys and even less distinct melodies.
