To My Boy

theGrid (Abeano)

By • Mar 1st, 2006 • Category: Single review

To My Boy�s second single has a rather vague, Matrix-lite, concept behind it, with theGrid apparently being �either evil or beautiful�beginning life as a rickety wires, quickly growing heavy girders with the help of a bass machine�. What they are on about, or what their lyrics are muttering about is a mystery. Musically To My Boy are a throwback to classic 80s electronic music, from their faceless image to the vocals, which are a pitch perfect imitation of Thomas Dolby�s warblings. A bit too derivative of their influences to leave their own mark however.
