- Fall In Line by The New Lines
Do you like ancient synths, vintage sequencers? Do you like eerie ‘60s proto-electronic pop music? Do you like Broadcast? If the answer is ‘yes’ to at least two of those questions then you will no doubt find ‘Fall In Line’ to be something worth putting away the vaccum cleaner for. It begins with some majestically fluttery synths, in waltz time and although a man sings, the vocals recalls the monotone yet haunting delivery of Trish Keenan. The song in question is the title track and is an absolute triumph.
‘8239’ introduces some nicely meshing sparkly guitars to the mix, the drums battering away energetically. ‘Sentry On Patrol’ enjoys some rather odd time changes which throw you for a loop, the vocals retaining their robotic delivery and the organs often recalling the twirls of Nick Wright on the very first Pink Floyd records. ‘Burning Bridges’ is marginally less busy and sounds like The Clientele as played by the BBC Radiophonic Orchestra. Superb 60’s inspired songwriting complete with all the twists and turns that brings yet something heartfelt at its core. It loses its mind halfway through jumping through a series of hoops, veering upside down before stumbling back to its feet to perfectly continue the melodic strung out bliss. This is sure to appeal to fans of the Ghost Box label, the aforementioned Broadcast as well as the best bits of ‘60s apers such as the Lilys.
7/10 Rob Gannon 26th October 2013
"Sonically, Fall In Line is thus, unsurprisingly perhaps, a retro-futurist encounter in which wheezy Farsifa organ dominates alongside vintage modular sequencers and hypnotic, Moog-like synths and keys. "
