Single review by KevW

Personally, I'd stick a fiver on 'The Echo Show' making an appearance in a few end of year lists. Since dropping first track and free download 'Analogue Wheel' a few weeks back it was clear that the pair had taken a leap forward, from writing pop songs about lonely tortoises to crafting a barnstorming Krautrock/electro-shoegaze monster. No laurels are being rested upon, these guys are challenging themselves.
First single proper, 'Sparkling Sunbeam', is a more sedate affair, layers of sound built upon 70s electronic pulses and spidery guitar. It's not the all-guns-blazing attack that some of the album's other songs could have provided, but it's sure as hell a great track, and if you can imagine some kind of collaboration between the aforementioned Animal Collective, The Horrors and Beach House then you'll get a pretty good idea what we're dealing with. 2012 could well be their year.
