Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2013-06-23
Indie rock that’s smeared with experimental. Noise thats smeared with indie rock. Putting a new definition on noise pop. One second this sounds creepy freaky then it sounds like Cold Play was murdered and rose from the dead. Beautiful stuff.

1) (6:43) spooky heavy reverb, urgent beat, cool, grows epic bombastic toward end
2) (5:12) blends nicely out of previous, dramatic pounding but ethereal keys, melodic feel
3) (5:01) a nice mellow but complex interesting indie pop song, vocals in front
4) (4:33) urgent complex beat, fans of Arctic Monkeys type stuff will like
5) (4:55) dramatic cinematic strings, big vocal voiceover, lots of tension
6) (4:10) total noise pop, driving, distorted yet accessible in pop manner
7) (3:11) similar to 4 with the urgent complex indie rock thing happening, really good
8) (5:22) this has a worldy feel to it, cant place it being Celtic or African, some really deep bass, great
9) (6:05) slow plod, use of brass, killer guitar lead, this is the best track as it mixes everything up intensely
10) (5:15) chill, almost a island presence in the use of lap steele, soaring vocals border on sensitive cold play bono, quite lovely
