Boomkat Product Review:
S.A. Andree are a mysterious outfit indeed. Probably hailing from Sweden, the group and their label Lex present 'There's A Fault' backed with practically no info whatsoever, which is quite refreshing to be fair. Their name is a nod to famous 19th century balloon explorer and his ill fated expedition to the North Pole in 1897, when all three members of his crew died. The entire album is influenced by this tale, from the choice of vintage analog instruments selected for their inaccuracy and inherently archaic behaviour to the track titles and most importantly the bleakly melancholy mood. With an array of bleeps, affected shoe-gazy vocals and sparse beats they conjure a delicate and tender album that doesn't really sound like anything else on Lex, but that's always kinda been their schtick innit? Imagine Solvent jamming with The Sight Below and you're pretty much there. Recommended.
