Straddling the mid ground between Franz Ferdinand and Haircut One Hundred, Acrobat produce the kind of disco-influenced indie music that was de rigeur amongst the class of ‘82 with their white boy funk and arran sweaters. The basslines could have been played by John Taylor of Duran Duran, the guitars chink away in an Orange Juice manner, all topped off with a very English vocal styling. Hints….just hints of Metronomy here and there. Slick indie funk straight outta the mean streets of Chichester.

The best track is ‘Invincible’ which lurches into a chorus which reminds me of someone from the early 80’s but who? Hmm...a bit XTC, a bit Farmers Boys. On the B side ‘Buffalo’ aims more at the sophisticated ballads of early Prefab Sprout, missing of course by some distance but its a valid attempt.
