Alt.pop from Norwich that’s less weird than be­fore… just

I, Gem­ini, LEG’s 2016 de­but, wasn’t eas­ily cat­e­gorised, be­ing an idio­syn­cratic al­bum made by two dis­arm­ingly alike teenage friends whose live per­for­mances fea­tured ‘pat-a-cake’ chore­og­ra­phy and tan­gen­tial sax so­los. What felt like day­dream ideas in mat­u­ra­tion then have been shaped into truly rounded songs now. Pro­duc­ers SO­PHIE and Faris Bad­wan add in­dus­trial bom­bast to the K-pop of “Hot Pink”, while macabre bal­lad “Fall­ing Into Me” morphs into a threat­en­ing club record. Just when it all could be mis­taken for a newly ap­proach­able pop di­rec­tion, they close with an 11-minute synth jam that ref­er­ences go­ing “bat­shit crazy”.
