Pur­sued By Dogs (Own Re­lease)

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - FRONT PAGE -

The Dublin band have at­tracted plenty of at­ten­tion over the past year thanks to a hand­ful of slow-burn­ing, at­mo­spheric songs, and this im­pres­sive de­but al­bum de­liv­ers on much of that prom­ise. A moody brand of elec­tron­ica is at the heart of their so­phis­ti­cated com­po­si­tions, es­pe­cially the out­stand­ing ‘Talk’. At times, their epic sound drifts to­wards melo­drama but when they rein in their ex­cesses, they’re on sure ground: wit­ness the propul­sive, xx-like ‘Ice­land’.
