This is what you’d call an ‘odd cove’ were you a retired army colonel. Fundamentally, it’s questionable 1980s-style power pop that could have been sung by men sporting thin ties and thick-rimmed spectacles – indeed, attire often to be spotted on members of Make Model. The time signature is so jerky that you might end up with a Gordian Knot shaped spine should you try to dance to it. Aimi’s vocals on the choruses slip into a berserk falsetto without warning. It’s curiously rather good though, so we’ll forgive them the crap specs.
