Earlier this week I was temporarily put in charge of a child. Amazingly I got through the whole 30 seconds unscathed and didn’t manage to make any mistakes. I think I’ve finally grown up. From the sounds of their fourth album (fourth? who let that happen?) Young Galaxy are closer to the type of band who will get the coveted Montreal One Direction support slot than to bother the pen of music critics.
Opener ‘Pretty Boy’ is pleasant enough commercial pop but the second track ‘Fall For You’ sets alarm bells ringing. It sounds almost exactly like David Brent’s ‘Equality Street’ with both a reggae-lite rhythm and a ‘day-O’ vocal hook. The opening line ‘I work the mines ‘til the break of dawn’ shows that they don’t belong in a post-Thatcherite Britain, it’s great that she has died and everything but it would have been better if someone had finished off the job 30 years ago. The rest of the album is somewhere between abysmal and obnoxious. I can’t begin to think how to describe it to you. School of Seven Bells as manipulated by Simon Cowell perhaps? Plus points? It’s out on vinyl, though I can’t imagine anyone in their right mind wants to play it.
