The Bones Of What You Believe wasn't too bad of an album if you listen to the music for what it is and remove all preconceptions of what it should be. That album was the absolute definition of electro meets pop. . . also I think We Share may have been on Fifa 14. I don't mind Chvrches, but I am going into this record with a fair amount of skepticism. We'll see.
Track one is called Graffiti, which is fitting really, because the album art is also graffiti. Perhaps the theme of this record is being rebellious. . . whilst simultaneously writing music destined for the UK Top 40. Hm. What the song does lack in originality is somewhat saved by some sweet production quality and very catchy electronic sounds. To cut a long story short, the following twelve tracks share pretty much the same theme: catchy, poppy and repetitive. They're not really bad songs, they're just very predictable. It's a difficult one, because they're not quite as naff as generic pop music, but nor are they really filling a gap in the market. Synth-pop is always a hard one to get right, mind.
Credit where credit is due. It does what it's supposed to. The tracks are flamboyant and I imagine are great to dance to if you're about 15 years old. It's not a bad record, it's just very meh. I'd give it a listen if you like synth-pop and you're not really expecting anything mind blowing! If not, I'd perhaps listen to Martin Doherty's other musical affiliation The Twilight Sad.
