THE LOW FREQUENCY IN STEREO

POP OBSKURA

2013

 

 

ART-POP ANYONE?

 

 

This is swirling Indie Pop nonsense with cool drifting tunes, dreamlike vocals and all kinds of cool noises and to be honest it’s quite addictive.

 


From the swirling mists of ‘Elevated Desecrated’ to the quirky jangle of guitar in the trance-inducing ‘Curly Hair’ all the way to the Hammond-led ‘Secondhand Nation’ it’s very much a mood record.

 


Reminding me somewhat of early eighties 4AD releases meets Bjork it’s certainly left-field, light and spacious making sparing use of guitars, but it’s woven together so intricately it’s always interesting.  Sit back and relax and let it all wash over you.
