Boomkat Product Review:
The Chap courted a good deal of attention thanks to their odd glitch pop aesthetic, as captured on albums Ham and The Horse, but this time around they've outdone themselves, introducing their new material via the barbershop quartet-meets-Hot Chip dynamics of 'They Have A Name', only to slip into the single 'Fun & Interesting', which sounds disconcertingly like Queen in its theatrical harmonised vocal execution. In fact, seldom does something so daft sound so lovingly crafted: just listen to the big production and the sweeping strings. They're hardly befitting a song that comically boasts "my generation needs another me". Against all your better judgement, it's entirely likely that you'll find yourself won over once its four minutes are up. A similar formula is successfully exploited by 'Surgery', a breezy, utterly addictive dose of melodic laptop funk, cracking electronic beats and a string quartet doing just enough to lend a sense of pop gravitas without setting the whole thing out of balance. Some of the album's less committed sounding vocals (as on 'The Health Of Nations') might come across as a bit irritating to some. If Syd Barrett were alive today, and was an IT consultant who only pretended to be crazy, making electronic music in his spare time, he might have sounded a bit like this.
