The Ticket gig of The WEEK

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Inside -

It’s dif­fi­cult to lis­ten to an elec­tron­ica act with a fe­male vo­cal­ist with­out mak­ing com­par­isons to Swedish elec­tropop giants The Knife – Telepathe, at Whe­lan’s on Satur­day night, had two, mak­ing things even trick­ier. But com­par­isons were short-lived: this set was all boom­ing bass and steady synths and, though the magic didn’t quite come to­gether for the Brook­lyn duo, there’s no doubt that it’s there – they might just need to peel off some lay­ers if they want the recog­ni­tion their hyp­notic line of elec­tropop surely de­serves.
