Using just synth, guitar, bass and vocals, the Tangients attack with heavy bass lines, but lighten up some with Ray’s singing. It’s like Depeche Mode updated with elements of The Kills and Phantogram.

I love the chanting vocal on this track with that driving bassline and spooky guitar. Ethereal bliss at its finest, a vocal quiver to match the dissonant guitar chords, wavering off key that fits with the gothic rock greats. Think Siouxie Sioux, Switchblade Symphony. The gritty guitar scratches thrown in for texture in the bridge is just fantastic. It’s a song that is clean, yet dark and raw.
Sporadic whips of lead guitar harass the track to within an inch of its life and those menacing lines of synth lift the chorus parts brilliantly. As debut singles go, this is impressive stuff and it’ll be very interesting to hear what comes next from this band.
“intense vocals – think a less strident Jehnny Beth of Savages – with Hussey’s sonic layers of synth and effects for a quite masterly first track.”
