The Unisex certainly have ambition. Touted as the most exciting thing to come out of Sweden since The Hives and the lead track on this EP being described on their web site as "Gimme Shelter for the 21st Century," you get the feeling that they've set their sights rather high.
Go Again, by far the best track on this EP, certainly has the scope and ambition of the aforementioned Stones track, but the vocals are where it falls down. Lead singer Jonas sounds like Thom Yorke on speed (a disturbing image, no?) and the lyrics are inanely repetitive.
Castle Of Air sounds like something we should have been listening to in the heyday of Britpop and the Delays-esque Break The Silence is bouncy, poppy radio filler. Watching Traffic is a decent introduction to this amiable Swedish outfit, but on this evidence there's nothing really strong enough to put The Cardigans out of business as Sweden's premier pop merchants.
