Boomkat Product Review:
Grovesnor is the solo alias of Hot Chip drummer Rob Smoughton, whose winning combination of AOR-style '80s pop music and more futuristic electronic arrangements place him somewhere between Hall & Oates and Sebastian Tellier. "Grovesnor's is a unique blend of future pop - check the ticking drum machines and chill wave synths on Taxi From The Airport or the dubstep machinations of Nitemoves with its Joe Jackson on poppers new millennium vibes. Is he for real? Is this ironic retro futurism or heart on its sleeve proto soul? Well maybe he's not serious like Public Enemy or Rage Against The Machine but he's no joker... "The music is not pastiche, I love that stuff too much. Lyrically there's another thing going on. You can write a novel from another person's perspective but when you write a song and use the words 'I' and 'you' then there's often an assumption it's personal. The ambiguity of "is he for real" is where Grovesnor comes in. He's more of an anti-hero, and often makes mistakes or chooses the wrong path at pivotal moments. If there's comedy in these songs then that's just the tragedy amplified to comic proportions.""
