Critical Massacre

25 Mar

 

Bit of blurb sent to me about  Cicada, who I featured a while back with their record Falling Rockets, and their upcoming album Roulette:
“Cicada release their second album Roulette on 25 May 2009 through Critical Mass
 
The follow up to their self-titled debut album of 2006, Roulette effortlessly ranges in styles; from the best moments of vintage electro-pop on the euphoric lead single ‘Metropolis’ (already receiving support from Radio 1), to the darkest recesses of electronic-indie on ‘Executive’, featuring Tom Smith of Editors on vocals. 
 
Dance fans will hear echoes of William Orbit’s finest moments and Daft Punk’s seminal debut on the gloriously percussive ‘P-Star’.  Indie fans will latch onto Technique-era New Order.  Pop fans will simply hear great melodies and concise song-writing reminiscent of Blondie at their peak.  Throughout, Roulette is underpinned by consistently big and intelligent beats, washes of glorious synths, and the haunting, hugely melodic vocals of Icelandic siren Heidrun Bjornsdottir.”
I’m not a big fan of the original Metropolis but The Twelves have done a nice remix below:
