There's far better synthpop stuff out there. But I can listen to average synthpop but not average "indie". I don't switch the radio off if she's on.
now thats a fucking pop song for ya.
but at least half of the album is great, big hooks, rich thrummy buzz from that weird little machine she uses, not too knowing. The bones track with just piano and her singing in her Lancastrian accent is lovely too.
and not surprising as in "I'm so indie I expected it to be awful way". More in a way that it's not arched or knowing, it's really honest and big pop music with loads of hooks and fun.
Having said that I'm not sure she'll ever write a better song than 'Stuck On Repeat' and I worry she has no real charisma. She'd probably be better as a song writer for other people.
