Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
OMR is a French duo consisting of Virginie Krupe and Alexandre Brovelli. This is their second album, an electric production with real soul. There are similarities with Germany’s beguiling Lali Puna.
The title song is a gloriously melancholy and the vocal is great.
“Stood the test of Time” is minimal and seductive.
“Dancers” is a rhythmic song, which combines the group’s trademark sound with a catchy tune. Krupa manages to sound aloof and alluring yet again.
“Silvery” is a brilliant song, which sounds a bit like Ladytron.
OMR’s music is appealing and hugely rewarding on this record.
