Boomkat Product Review:
A bit like getting trapped in a 1980's arcade alongside troops of ADD-addled troubadours, DAT Politics have always been a sensory assault - with their sixth album in as many years a predictably riotous affair. Ensconced on the caffeine-wired Chicks On Speed Records, the Gaelic trio DAT have consistently pushed their laptop compositions beyond the realms of mere noise-mongering; preferring instead to ram raid their hard-disks for any remnants of melodic fortitude, before proceeding to splatter them all over your ears with abject glee. Taking in everything from widescreen sci-fi synths and unashamed rock operas, through to pin-pricktronica and 8-bit mayhem, 'Wow Twist' will certainly not to be everyone's taste - with a high tolerance to mayfly attention-spans a must. Far more palatable than the new-wave of circuit-abusers (much of ADAADAT/Wrong Music et al.), DAT Politics sound almost old-fashioned in their quest to actually feature songs amongst the digital mêlée, with opening track 'Viper Eyes' a case in point. Despite battering you senseless with a tirade of snotty punk gobbyness and all manner of car-boot sale beats+bleeps, 'Viper Eyes' nonetheless invests in a copper-bottomed melody that will be bouncing round your head for hours. Elsewhere, 'Roll' goes for c-h-o-p-p-e-d vocals and lurching digitalis, 'Dizzy Zip' takes a trip on a circuit-bound merry-go-round, whilst 'Gravity' is a fizzing pot of rabble-rousing snotiness. Westminster!
