Following on from the teasing single "Her Fantasy", Matthew Dear's latest album fully reveals itself, and provides a natural progression from the promise laid out by that initial track. In many ways the album is a step on from the bizarre synth-pop of Black City, delving into the freaky sound design of Krautrock to provide new textures of a more organic nature in amidst the machines. Tactile bass guitars shear themselves against intricate layers of arpeggio and crisp lashings of guitar, getting ever closer to an authentic band sound which Dear has been slowly edging towards since he flipped his own script with Asa Breed back in 2007.
