My Tiny Robots - Guild Of Defiants

Single review by KevW

'Guild Of Defiants' is the first in a planned series of three singles from Edinburgh experimentalists My Tiny Robots and follows on from free download 'Rock Bossa Nova Four Beat Black'. It's a more conventional concoction than that track's oddpop eclecticism, but this is by no means a criticism, as despite its more subdued nature and containing less of a menagerie of sounds and surreal lyrics, this is arguably a better song.

After a few plays the circling guitar riff begins to get under your skin and is nicely complimented by the thumping, irregular drumming; it all becomes pleasantly catchy. This is no out-and-out pop song though, there's too much off-kilter charm for that, but it's difficult to deny it possesses a certain cross-over appeal, the strong vocals in particular are unlikely to find many haters, and there's an occasional twang of a less polished Wild Beasts about the chorus. My Tiny Robots have revealed another string to their bow and come up trumps again.
