Then And Only Then
They have kept their fans waiting for a long time. True followers never give up hope, however, and their faith has been rewarded with the fifth studio record. Out on Friday, the taster single is out now and is possibly the first thing we’ve heard in all this time. What has been affectionately described as synth-punk, the duo brings a delectable infusion of spirit and creativity along the lines of modern technology. Not long now until the record comes out, Dreaming Of Sleep had cover art made by Michael Speed of Beggars Group London. A fantastic production was carried out by record industry executive Howard Thompson, who’s worked alongside bands like Motorhead, Billy Bragg, MC5, and the Psychedelic Furs. The brilliance of the band shines through the expert design of their album and the new video Then And Only Then leaves us in no doubt as to what we can expect.
A ghostly vocal enters the sound as a smooth and icy synthesiser slides around various key tones. Electrocution style drumming jolts in tempered blasts of electro percussion and mysterious and edgy notes bubble around the duo vocal. An eerie and dramatic atmosphere gives the music an intriguing sense of endearing awkwardness that presents as clever and fitting against the abstract composition. A drift of various images and colours sail before us as the song takes us through various hushed and emotional sections of breaking waves.
