"Bad Insect" is both the first track on the album and the lead single promoting the album - it's a good track (one of the best on the album), and it sets the tone musically for the rest of the record. This album was created "from a love of afrobeat, electronic, art and inspired by tequila." This tagline from the band is a pretty apt description of their work - especially apparent here is the influence of electronic and afrobeat. Much of the song Radiohead has been using lately is reproduced here, but in a much more accessible way. "Bad Insect" uses the similar choppy drums and synthesizers that a song like "15 Step" has, but here it isn't used in an alienating way. The music itself serves best as a backdrop for Laura Bettinson's vocals. There are a few moments when the music is especially captivating ("Our Song,") but for the most part, its repetition helps create an atmosphere for the vocals to capitalize on.
The second half of the album seems to focus less on melody in favor for atmosphere, and in these tracks the synthesizers come to life.Read more ›
