For the Weekly Album Appreciation Club
This band is indeed a creative and promising bunch. Some may over-think how to pigeon-hole their style but it could be describe with a simple post-electro rock, as it encompasses most of the elements used in their music: spiky synths, deep bass and rhythmic drum beats that create a rich but easy to follow pop sound.

There are moments when it bursts with energy, most noticeably during the early tracks of Dance Music, Salut! France and Still Game. There are also darker tinges throughout the album that add - if one may say - more personality, as can be heard during National Prism and The Bagpipes.
