Boomkat Product Review:
With their recent Kids EP, The Concretes have already proven that they're more than capable of continuing without the talents of vocalist/songwriter Victoria Bergsman (who left the band during filming of The Jonathan Ross Show). "Hey Trouble" only confirms that they're still on top of their game. Sidestepping the polish and sheen of their previous album "In Colour", Hey Trouble harks back to the ramshackle magnificence of the band's brilliant debut, with drummer Lisa Millberg and guitarist Maria Eriksson (who recently turned out an excellent solo record under her Santa Maria guise) doing a great job of filling in on vocals between them, and songs like 'A Whale's Heart' and 'Oh Boy' are as good as anything the band have previously achieved. The echoing Motown-meets-garage rock production serves the songs up perfectly: this is bubblegum of the most satisfying, sophisticated variety. Even the slower, less upbeat songs have that elusive air of pop perfection to them : 'If We're Lucky We Don't Get There On Time' and the dainty harmonies of 'Oh No' make for bittersweet ballads of Abba-like proportions, and the euphoric choruses of early single 'Kids' suggest The Concretes still have plenty of life in them. Highly recommended.
