Editorial Reviews

Groove Armada are back with a new sound. The new album, "Black Light" is a collision of alt and electronic genres featuring vocalist Bryan Ferry from Roxy Music, Empire of the Sun, UK pop star Will Young, and introducing Saint Savior. Get ready to hear Groove Armada like never before.

Customer Reviews

Well, that is Groove Armada making 80's music.
Colin Mulholland
Just about every second of this album is laced with so much goodness it's hard to actually stop listening to it.

I guess his voice is one that you either love or hate, or might be an acquired taste.

I must admit that I am a recent convert to Groove Armada, but nonetheless I am smitten with GA's infectious sounds. This new album is about 90% + sonically on the money with many nods to Disco and New Wave classics. I will hit a few of the highlights (in no particular order):

1) HISTORY (Featuring Will Young) - A delicious tune that reminds me of Jimmy Sommerville meets Sylvester meets Erasure meets Moby. Totally danceable, a gorgeous throwback to the best of the late 70's and early 80's. Easily one of the best new songs on this fine disc.

2) SHAMELESS (Featuring Bryan Ferry) - One of the best Bryan Ferry tunes I have heard in many years, and instant classic. From the cool French intro to the smooth synthesizers, this tune captures that haunting quality that has always made Bryan Ferry & Roxy Music but somehow transcends albums like Mamouna and Bette Noir. This is definitely music for a smoke filled night at a chic Euro club, very sensual and memorable. I would love to know who played in the studio for this track - five stars.

3) LOOK ME IN EYE THE SISTER (Featuring Jess Larabee) - Without question a successful homage to rocker Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders, an 80's groove yes...but with plenty of richness and "phat" as one other reviewer said. I liked this a lot.

4) PAPER ROMANCE (Featuring Fenech Soler and SaintSavior) - Harder to peg the influences here but certainly has elements of the best of Depeche Mode with a big dose of Sharpe and Numan from the 80's track "Change Your Mind."

5) TIME AND SPACE (Featuring SaintSavior and Jess Larabee) - One of the most powerful tracks on the album, with some hot vocals layered on top of a mixture of lush Alan Parsons Project riffs and trance electronica. Five stars.

Format: Audio CD
Groove Armada follow up 2007's groovy hip Hop/Dub-inflected Dance CD "Soundboy Rock" with "Black Light". Out go big-voiced soul divas like Candi Staton and Angie Stone (who loaned their voices to a few tracks) and in comes a poppier guitar, more Eurodisco sound. Both albums could have been recorded by different groups.

With no instrumentals or ballads (like Soundboy Rock's "Save my soul", "What's your version" or "From the rooftops"), the mood is sunny and upbeat.

Opening is the guitar driven Alt Rock/Pop "Look me in the eye sister", followed by the droning falsetto-sung "Fall silent" with Nick Littlemore from Empire Of The Sun who also appears on the anthemic "Not forgotten" (with a snarling performance this time), the buzzing "Cards to your heart" (with spoken/sung lyrics), and on the Prodigy-style "Warsaw" with additional vocals by Saintsaviour.

"Just for tonight" is a charming Indie Pop ditty with jangly guitars and strings, while "I won't kneel" has a chorus that sounds like ABBA (vocals by Saintsaviour).

The clubbier numbers start from midway into the album; the electrifying "Paper romance", the outstanding "Shameless" (with some spoken French and crooned aching vocals by Bryan Ferry), "Time and space" (with swirling effects), and the closing hypnotic "History" with Will Young turning in a Jimmy Sommerville-style robotic falsetto to a slutty Disco backdrop. Awesome!

I like the sonic diversity on this album and though different from its predecessor, it is every bit as rich and good.

If the first three months of 2010 are any indication of how amazing this year in music is going to be, the world is in for one wild ride. At the current helm of this ultimate control, is the UK's Tom Findley and Andy Cato, aka Groove Armada.

On the duo's 6th full-length album release, Black Light (2010, OM Records), it would be a euphemism to say that the previous borders and confinements of genre and sonic exploration were expanded upon. It's difficult to describe the jolt of excitement that curses through the listener's veins once injected with a delightful and foreign substance such as that found within said topic of discussion, and it would not be incorrect to assume that every individual involved in the recording of Black Light was assuredly feeling the electricity all the way through the creative process.

As soon as the album gets underway the excitement engulfs the listener. The first strong female presence appears 4 tracks in, on "I Won't Kneel" (see video below), featuring London's SaintSaviour, who can confidently boast having shared a stage with Duran Duran and revered inspirations such as Candi Staton, Buffy Sainte-Marie and Carleen Anderson. SaintSaviour's soulful and spirited vocals lay down not only a solid base but also come across with a twinkle, that for lack of a better analogy, is reminiscent of Kirsty Hawkshaw's stunning vocal offerings on BT's classic trance album, Movement In Still Life (1999, Black Hole Recordings). Mature and masterful production provides the perfect environment for SaintSaviour's vocals to truly stand out and take hold of the listener's soul.

Jessica Larrabee (She Keeps Bees) is another fantastic reason to check out Black Light in 2010.
