Electrelane: "The Greater Times"


Brighton's (thanks guys) Electrelane

I'll have to admit, before recently hearing them again, I was only mildly familiar with with the four ladies from Brighton that call themselves Electrelane; which is kind of embarassing considering they've released three albums prior to their foirthcoming No Shouts, No Calls. Catching up with their back catalog aside, the new record, which will be released by Too Pure at the end of April, is probably the only 2007 release so far that I've actually been consitantly listening to over and over again. Especially the first track, what a way to open an album. This also marks the first non-pop record I've been really into in the past several months.

[MP3]: Electrelane :: The Greater Times (Very Rec'd!!)
I like to imagine the kick and ride at the start of "The Greater Times" as a sort of marching of sorts, leading the song into battle, and the crash hits as the big guns firing off into the distance. Glorified battling aside though, these girls have got a great grasp on the concept of "building up" because there doesn't seem to be a point (save, the end) where the song isn't growing in some way. It reaches it's finest moment however as Verity sings: "I'm tearing down the walls! the walls! the walls! the walls! the walls! the walls!" Like I said before, I couldn't think of a better song to start off the album.

Dreams of Horses has another track from No Shouts, No Calls

They're from Brighton originally. The album was recorded in Berlin according to their website.
