Duologue - 'Song & Dance'
If the idea of a band taking all their cues from Radiohead’s post-‘Kid A’ era tickles you, then Duologue are for you
7 / 10
If the idea of a band taking all their cues from Radiohead’s post-‘Kid A’ era tickles you, then it’s time to get acquainted with London five-piece Duologue. Frontman Tim Digby-Bell’s falsetto howl is a dead-ringer for Thom Yorke’s, and ‘Cut And Run’ sees him glide over an ‘I Might Be Wrong’-style industrial atmosphere created by steely guitar riffs and choppy beats. Elsewhere the rock chorus of ‘Snap Out Of It’ hints towards ‘Black Holes & Revelations’-era Muse and their move into stadium territory. But it’s mid-album epic ‘Push It’ that best showcases their dexterity, an eerie bass-drum kick blending with a beautiful crescendo of soaring violin strings and piano keys.
