Single review by firstname.lastname@example.org
Yet again we find ourselves talking about the fertile musical planes of Brighton, this time it's electro-pop/indie duo Faux Flux who've recently released their new EP 'Come Alive'. Initially the solo guise of Alex Ensoll who created the project last year, January saw Demelza Mather join to take care of percussion and drums, adding an extra dynamic to their live set. It's in the live arena that they hope to impress too, with the aim being to put together these electronic textures in the studio and then replicate them with an exciting live show.
We can only comment on the studio creations at the moment, but in 'Come Closer' they've crafted a fine tune, and you can see why they've been compared to Hot Chip and MGMT (think that band on a dancier tip). 'Come Closer' isn't like much electro-pop that borrows heavily from the past, Faux Flux want to create, not recreate, and this they're doing. If they can keep the standard this good and get the live experience as honed as they're hoping to then they could be on to something.
