AC Berkheimer - My Love, It's Not The Same

Single review by

Are those colours "in" this autumn? We've seen them on quite a few covers recently. Dutch band AC Berkheimer can trace their roots all the way back to 2005 when the quartet first began trying to combine their musical skills into something more useful. A year later they had a demo EP and had begun playing live. It wasn't until 2010 that début album 'We Tell Them Tonight' was released and since then the band has gone from strength to strength. This week they follow up that first offering with new album 'Equation Of State' and single 'My Love, It's Not The Same'.

This new record follows a minor line-up shuffle as family duties rightly became a more important part of drummer Remco's life, but his work is now in the capable hands of new member Aram. It's difficult to place 'My Love, It's Not The Same'. Broadly speaking it's alt-rock, although there are many forms of alt-rock and AC Berkheimer have absorbed many of them here, perhaps due to their geographical position placing them between the industrial, experimental sounds of continental Europe and the varied British indie and psych scenes. It's a fine track though, and if this is indicative of the record then we suggest it's time to part with a little cash.
