EDITORS’ NOTES

Singular adventures in pop oddness, recorded in a nuclear bunker in the east of England. Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth’s debut has many childlike charms: over-sweetened teenage-witch vocals; liberal use of glockenspiel and recorder; and a low-boredom-threshold flightiness that carries the pair from dimly-lit trip-hop (“Deep Six Textbook”) to sinister folk (“Chocolate Sludge Cake”), and lo-fi rave and hip-hop (“Eat Shiitake Mushrooms”). There’s nothing infantile about their execution though, and they layer sound and ideas into enrapturing melodies with skill and fearlessness.

Mind-bogglingly good

Mysterious, experimental arrangements with killer pop tunes. If you want a comparison then there are shades of The Knife here - but everything here is so original that any comparison seems unfair. If you like your pop left field, then this is for you. Check out their videos too. A fantastic release!

Darkly Sweet

This is a really good album, the more I listen the more I like it's kind of 'Cirque Du Freak' feel.
