Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

The dynamic vocalist Aubrey Smith fronts the Batterie and they play tight, soulful music.

Smith’s vocal comes to the fore on the opening title track. The song shifts from quiet to loud in an inspired way.

“Isn’t it you” is rockin’ and suspenseful all at once. Gabe Hays plays an expressive guitar on it.

“Angry Happy” is a nice title for a groove-oriented atmospheric track. Smith’s lovely vocal recalls Skye from Morcheeba.

“Wise” is a slow-burning song with a nice soulful mood. This is a nice and varied debut by a gifted band.
