Its a strange premise for an album and I'm sure that if someone said to me "listen to this is indie electronic music mixed with WW2 public service messages" a few years ago id have more than likely told them to stuff it somewhere. Now after a few listens and granted at fist it didn't really sit with me, I love it.
I have to admit I am rather patriotic, so the talk of the war and england being strong is always good in my books add that with great pulsing music and flowing rhythms and i'm a fan.
The standout to me is spitfire, the guitar hook in that record is unbelievably great. Obviously its a bit hard to call them lyrics but they are great, its really a great blend of old samples and new sounding music. To me it sounds like the cooper temple clause merged with WW2 (yes its that good)
The only downside is its so short and were will they go after this? Who knows but as a concept its great breath of fresh air.
