There’s a real Cure/New Order vibe going on. A slightly-too-heavy bass line masks the vocals and the synths are straight off ‘Substance’. There’s also a hefty dollop of My Bloody Valentine’s ‘Soon’ right in the middle.
It creates a vibe somewhere between a ’90s indie club at midnight and an Unplugged concert.
If there’s a flaw here, it is that these guys have got too much attitude and not enough originality. There are specks of their own voice here and there and in time, they’ll mature into it. Good but better is to be expected in the future.
