Boomkat Product Review:
‘The Surveillance’ was the first record recorded and mixed entirely by the band. At the time their home studio, The Bridge, had taken several months to build. ‘The Surveillance’ was to take an equal amount of time as the band laboured hard to give the recording what they call “a dangerous quality”. The results are raw, sparse electronic breaks mixed with dieselpowered rock and roll. Trans Am put it in more masculine terms - “balls-to-the-wall-rockers” - which perhaps better captures not only the sound but the intent.
