Single review by kev@thesoundofconfusion.co.uk

It's been a while since we've had much new material from New York group HEARTSREVOLUTION, a duo (or trio when live) who were once considered to be the epitome of modern pop and maybe even a blueprint for the future. That never quite materialised, but it wasn't through a lack of very good, individual music. Plus there's still time, and new EP 'Ride Or Die' should, if things were right in the world, thrust them into the limelight, but maybe that's wishful thinking on our part. They do have a substantial fanbase though, so they're in with a chance of become as huge as they deserve.

Lead track from the new EP, 'Kill Your Radio' shows exactly why these guys should be drowning in plaudits. This is pop, it's edgy, it's modern, futuristic even, and it's full of imagination. They take the electro-pop blueprint, rip it to shreds and then reassemble it in a vibrant new way that takes the harsh noise-pop of bands like Crystal Castles and Sleigh Bells and adds a more fluid touch that gives the song a more appealing sound while still being at the forefront of modern pop music. It also happens to be a catchy little beast that's full of beans. This is how pop music in 2013 should sound.
