Boomkat Product Review:
Oxy-clean pop fusioneering from the fresh-faced Sunless '97, offloading their debut EP on XL offshoot Abeano. Theirs is the kind of sound which we reckon you'll be hearing a lot more of, managing to comfortably encompass pop, electronica and indie guitars without once sounding contrived or overbaked. That's probably got a lot to do with the seamless production from in-demand studio boffin, Kwes, but it's also a testament to the group's wide-ranging and honest-to-god musical tastes. Highlights for us have to be the dreamy pop bliss of 'Heaven Below' with its effete boy/girl vocals, achingly lush key changes and rhythms oscillating either side of boogie and indie disco, or equally the swirling beauty of 'Wicked Gravity', which sounds something like Puro Instinct caught midway along the bandwidth between Broadcast and Animal Collective; melancholy yet optimistic. An impressive start if we've heard one.
