Review: Property – Think Electric!
Written by cfuvmd on 04/01/2021
Sarah Harris, Jack Etch, and Liam Wight make a bold statement on their latest EP. Their signature mix of punk rhythms, post-punk arrangements and artsy vocals is delivered commandingly. “The Isolator” has a Kinks-esque vibe, but vocalist Harris goes from whimsy to the voice of authority in the blink of an eye. “Running Away”, on the other hand, is so angular and repetitive that it should be annoying, but the subtle use of melody turns it into a beautifully hypnotic experience. Perhaps best of all is “In Gloom”, where Harris rambles on about the dreariness of being stuck in fogbound St. John’s, but all the while the band thoroughly entertains us with a woozy blend of electronic and “natural” instrumentation.
‘Think Electric!’ is a confident release, showcasing a band in the prime of their creativity.
