5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Debut, September 4, 2009
This review is from: XX (Audio CD)
I've had this on constant replay for the last couple days and am now on about my 12th listen, and I'm still captivated. This is one of the most impressive albums that I've heard in some time. Imagine 17 Seconds era Cure with Elizabeth Fraser from the Cocteau Twins sharing lead vocals, produced by Timbaland. That's the starting point for this bewitching set of tunes. From the opening INTRO through to the closing STARS, every song is a highlight and flows perfectly into the next one. Languid guitars, spare beats and casual, conversational tag team male-female vocals created a dreamlike sound with plenty of space and emotion. I'm cueing it up for another listen. Very highly recommended.

What a weird analogy, I don't see it like that at all

The guitar is reminiscent of Durutti Column. I get a whiff of The Cure and a pinch of Joy Division. However, all-in-all I'd have to say that their sound is pretty well their own. Certainly not music for masses.
