Before I Explode (...)

Unsigned ethereal loveliness from a Birmingham / Plymouth duo – well, that’s how my initial notes read. However, I can’t really decide if I like this or not. The tune starts off like Postal Service or the Durutti Column and really bodes well especially when the fake strings kick in. But – see the Popolo review – it’d be fine if it continued as an instrumental. Unfortunately, the addition of a female vocal kind of spoils it, not because the voice is bad, but it turns it from alt to pop and comes across like the Sundays (hmm) or even Cranberries (aiee! run!). Shame.
