**PIC Blur-endorsed Icelandic duo move from techno to post-punk on an itchy claustrophobic debut
Album Review: Mi Ami - Dolphins (Thrill Jockey)
Replacing any musical finesse with annoyance and synth confusion
The remaining members, Damon and Daniel, took their chance to reinvent Mi Ami as a synth duo, thus erasing much of their ingenuity in favour of irritating, obvious Hi-NRG euphoria and, on ‘Echo’, Daniel shrieking like The Rapture’s Luke Jenner suffering night visions over dated punk-funk scree.
Occasionally they hit an addictive groove, but you’d hope so given that the songs are each five to 10 minutes long. Messy, and not in the good way.
