This record has a sticker on it declaring it the “New project from Mikey Young, David West and James Vinciguerra from Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Rat Columns, Rank/Xerox et al”, which immediately places it in the “probably right up my street” bracket, although upon listening to the record itself it’s not the garagey fun I was expected. Instead these guys are doing a hypnotic synthpop thing like New Order or Hot Chip, crisp and repetitive, with some occasional disco-style guitars poking out of the futuristic sheen.

Of the two A sides I’m preferring ‘Running’, the darker and slower paced of the two, which is almost like Horrid Red gone disco, the slow pace allowing for lots of atmospheric touches which temper the pure pop aspects a little. The New Order comparison remains unavoidable.

Turn it over and the tracks on the other side have the same titles but different lengths, most confusing. The ‘Falling’ is more stripped back and weird and all the better for it, relying on a hypnotic beat, wibbly synth drones and staccato guitar touches for a hazy effect that’s like a more dancefloor-oriented Washed Out, and ‘Running’ seems even more distant and hazy with an insistent techno kick and vocals reverbed to the max over splashes of trebly slow-decaying synth. Don’t go expecting Total Control or Eddy Current Suppression Ring, but if you like hypnotically repetitive synthpop you’ve come to the right place.
