It’s taken me a minute to twig what this CD reminds me of. There’s heavily reverbed guitars, mechanistic drum beats and a post-punky coldness which clearly owes a debt to the likes of Joy Division and Echo and The Bunnymen. It hit me in the end, though. This band sounds a lot like an all-boy version of Savages. The tones and pacing are very similar but we’ve got a singer who sounds like a cross between Robert Smith and the guy from Interpol instead of The Sandwiches’ Jehnny Beth.

These Swedes do have keyboards too though, and their big boomy post-punk sound is quite cinematic - particularly effective in ‘Wolves’, which really reminds me of a more widescreen take on The Cure’s mid-era mopey period after they were post-punk and before they were pop. I’m not convinced it’s as good as the Savages album, but then I wasn’t convinced the Savages album was as good as the Savages album either until I’d given the hype a chance to die down so what do I know? It will appeal to fans of dark strident post-punk with an ‘80s feel.
