Boomkat Product Review:
18+ debut with a haunting brand of indie soul/trip hop on Houndstooth. Their first 7" arrives hot on the heels of Soft As Snow's debut, with whom 18+ clearly share a taste for ear-worming hooks and iced electronics. Their A-side 'Crow' hinges plangent finger pops and looped-up caws around the kind of frothy motif that lodges in your nut for days, whilst processed male/female vox come off like The xx's fugged-up cousins. B-side, 'Horn' is spookier, mixing wheezy concrète textures and sluggish drums to stoned laughter and nonchalant vocals with a wry, Tricky-esque appeal.
