Two kings of the indie dancefloor unite for a warm, timeless take on 20th century pop and rock
The Soundtrack Of Our Lives : Sister Surround
...a shard of infectious, dreamy genius...
Reared in Gothenburg, a city hitherto famous only for its cathedral, ‘Sister Surround’ is variously reminiscent of a mandrax-paced Iggy And The Stooges, wayward ‘80s indie types The Teardrop Explodes or a chirpier take on the FX-pedal lunacy of the early ‘90s shoegazer bands. It is, in fact, a shard of infectious, dreamy genius that more than makes up for all the shuffly identikit Roses guff on the B-side.
