Boomkat Product Review:
Electrelane are four young women who refuse to be defined by one sound, and their second album, 'The Power Out', is a gauntlet thrown down to those who think they can predict their next move.
Recorded and mixed in Chicago with Steve Albini. While the speedy ambience of their debut remains, the most startling difference is that they have introduced vocals, something largely absent from their previous recordings. Not only do words play a more important role on this album, but Verity uses her voice as an instrument to devastating effect, singing in English, German, French and Spanish.
