One of the finest bands ever to grace these pages, London’s very own Alphabetic, have returned with another absolute beauty in the form of ‘The Fall‘. Once more your ears will find themselves at the mercy of Walter Heale’s wonderfully distinctive voice, a selection of synthy talent from across the front line and solid-as-a-rock drums from the ever-reliable Jon Baxter.
The four-piece have yet again pieced together a selection of glorious sounds and, while this might not be quite as upbeat a number as the perfection that is ‘Good Lovers‘, there’s plenty to get excited about. The mellow nature of these sounds make it feel as though you’re always waiting for something and, after a good two and a half minutes, everything kicks into full motion so you best get your goggles on if you don’t want to be blown right out of your chair. Trust me, the googles, they do something.
As various melodies float around and your mind heads back decades to a simpler time in which music was the only thing that really mattered in the world, you’ll realise just what a treat your ears have had. You do not want to miss out on this beauty, it’s absolutely exquisite.
