The 1980s may have been and gone but the electro-pop sound is living through a resurgence (look no further than Fischerspooner for an example). Trademark could be among the pioneers of the electro nu-wave generation.
Following on from their superb self-financed mini-album 'Fear:Disconnection', this five-track continues to showcase their talent. From the electro-glam 'This Is Our Trademark' onwards, the band are on to a winner. 'Interim' is a reminder of how good the Pet Shop Boys used to be in their early eighties peak with synths and twinkly sound effect.
To call this a demo is almost an insult as the recording quality is superb but what else would you expect from a band who supported The Human League less than a year ago? With their first real album due out this year on Truck Records. This could be their last step towards the big time and no-one can begrudge them that.
