When you walk into a venue and the promoter is immediately talking up the final act on the night your attention is piqued. The hype was justified with this duo as well who are very firmly on the rise this year. Things got going with the fittingly titled ‘Beginning’. This has nouveau disco flourishes in the beat that are tailored in a tasteful way. This is a strong tune that focuses a clever projection through that meets well with the neat weight of the orchestration of the vocals. As they meet the sublime electronica allows everything to get lost in the music. Another highly interesting point of note here is the way that this development avoids anything resembling a retro calling. Another finely acquitted chic temperament is realised with ‘Let Go’. The lavish keel of the tempo cleverly clicks into gear. That apparent dynamic in the breakdown goes with the flow. How the guitar is worked in gives it an intelligent level of indie credibility that lines up alongside the lyrics. Beginning with a spoken work dictation is ‘True Romance’. That then sees the progressive temerity relax across the delivery before the hardened tempo of the heady drum and bass flavour mixes in to the electronica elements.
What crosses over on ‘Dance Alone’ has a telling mainstream appeal. There are noir touches in the romantic projection of the vocals as well that are an excellent calling. Overall everything is a solid affair that is processed accordingly. What is impressive in how it comes together is the committed showing that is brandished with unerring authority to help them pull it off. Yielding something high in its trajectory is ‘Run’. This is evenly called upon which doesn’t put too much demand on the vocals. In turn this adds reputably as it all builds. The heightened sense of relevance comfortably comes to pass. It is an innovative affair in all the right ways and the open showing matures in a notable way as it all builds. Then we come to ‘Little Things’. Described as ‘the atmospheric one’, if there is to be anything that can be considered the oeuvre of their performance here tonight this is it right here. That is where they find their marked calling as a live act.
Noted for the bass in the beat is ‘Visceral’. That has a smart prominence which also connects with the drumming. As a result it becomes quite seductive in its own way. The meander here is rather descriptive and imbues it with a telling richness and sense of reach. That is a notoriety that confirms that they have arrived at something high in artistic merit. From the clever feeling of isolation processed, ‘Dying Stars’ leverages the guidance against those solitary sensibilities in a way that contributes a lot. Hanging off the spacious wonderment is a lingering circulation that defiantly declares a sense of fortune favouring the bold. The Avant Garde cornering is an equated value that works as it should but is also incredibly detailed in the considered approach undertaken here. They saved the best until last with ‘Bruce Lee’. This is a great choice for a single and the rapturous indie disco calling allows them to call on a retro style that they handle in an ample manner. That niche is what lights it all up. The quickened pace of the tempo is well judged and suitably impressive for all the right reasons. We will have an interview with the band coming up in our May issue and their album ‘Dying Stars’ will also be reviewed in our April issue.
