First Contact (self release)

If you’re going to make a splash with your debut album then you need to go large and that’s exactly what this Newcastle trio have done with a concept album detailing Earth’s first contact with an alien race. If you stopped reading at the words “concept” and “album” then you need to hurry back, because this release is packing fistfuls of great electronic pop songs that are thrumming with soaring melodies and dancefloor friendly beats. And, boy, they really know how to pull together the kind of chorus that knows how to blow in your ear and make the hairs on the back of your neck stand to attention.
