Boomkat Product Review:
The cold wave revival continues at pace, and this new Led Er Est single on Captured Tracks does a good job of tapping into the movement. A-side 'Poll Gorm' is a fizzy synth-punk number complete with silly '80s AmDram vocals that sounds perfectly in-keeping with the period these guys are aping. It's worth taking a look at the band's video for 'Laredo' on their MySpace before you're sold on them though: while you probably want them to be standing behind banks of circuitry dressed in tight black shirts with skinny pink ties (or something along those lines, oh I don't know) they do in fact look like what my dad would probably refer to as "a right shower", raising a few (unintentional?) laughs along the way.
