Sacre Noir

Nothing Falls Apart (Savage)

By • Sep 18th, 2016 • Category: Album review

The third and final part of not only a trilogy, but their career, sees the Edinburgh-based outfit in defiant mood.

Ordinarily leaning on samples and trip-hop the trio, instead, are in the mood to go out with a bang – opener ‘Mistakes’ sporting a pop hook and growling synths.

It’s this newly-discovered sound that stands out, that and the thudding beats and crisp production. ‘Heartache’s production is moody and sparse with sultry vocals laid on top, while ‘Matches’ may be the high point, a rasping guitar line clashing beautifully with the song’s other myriad influences.

It may be that the band has reached its logical conclusion, but with them hitting peak form, perhaps there may be time to reconsider?
