Witterings from an old indie kid
Indonesian band Turks & Caicos first caught our ears on the New Wave of Hype compilation and now we are treated to their debut EP Bad Situation.
There are five tracks here mixing up synth driven indiepop and as well as the guitar dominated type. The synth driven songs open and the first two remind me of The Radio Dept. It gets even better on This Town which is a gentle and sometimes beautiful song.
The title track sees the addition of frantic guitars that has that classic indiepop sound. They save the best to last on Subversive which is jangling indiepop at it’s finest. There are some amazing sounds coming out of this one and if you don’t press repeat at least twice there is something wrong with you! An excellent end to an impressive debut.
