Cindy Wilson is of course one of the founder members of The B-52s, everyone’s favourite queer-leaning new wave art-pop funtime band. Change finds Cindy changing tack a little, making interesting electro-pop with friends of hers from Athens, Georgia. A bit more subtle and varied than most B-52s material, but still definitely a good time. On Kill Rock Stars.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 06 December 2017

Cindy Wilson was in the B52s and is about 105 years old yet this is her first solo album. You may worry that she's been so far around the block that there'd be not much left to give other than increasingly gravelling backing vocals to 'Rock Lobster' but if you do you'd be an idiot. This is rather lovely and totally unexpected. 

It opens with a swish. 'People Are Asking' is a lovely slow moving dollop of electronic pop with a '60s feel and nods to Goldfrapp perfectly opening things up blueprinting the album as a series of well mannered electronic opuses topped off by Wilson's hushed, icy tones. Nice moments abound - 'No-One Can Tell You' is a fabbo slice of Pet Shop Boys ish sparkle with some Nile Rogers guitar and a feel good catchy chorus. Really making me feel good after a miserable morning. 'Mystic' is a glam racket of squelchy synths, late '70s disco, a glitterball of pulsating Moroder style rhythms and only 'Brother' sounds anything like her former band and that's just because it has a twangy (original) Ricky Wilson style riff but it actually sounds a hell of a lot like Broadcast. 

A total surprise this. It's an album of discofied electronica that is sleek, erudite and rather sumptuous.
