The Music have been creating a great deal of hyperbole - but, shock horror, in this case it is actually justified. The People showcases the band's talent for fusing styles in an extraordinary manner, for which some credit must surely be given to producer Jim Abbiss. He's also worked with Bjork, an artist beyond all others who knows nothing of genre boundaries, which might explain why we have a guitar band's anthem sounding like a trance track.
The People is an extraordinary record largely for that reason, but credit must also be given to Robert Harvey's almost androgynous vocals, which powerfully dominate the record through a whole series of beeps and bloops, riffs and cuts. With the aptly named Adam Nutter acquitting himself admirably on guitar, the Leeds four-piece have some special performing talent too.
At the start of a major tour, this is exactly the kind of release that will get them noticed and invite comparisons with the excellent Vex Red. Watch them as they fly stratospheric.
