This is another of the many bands I discovered via a podcast and eagerly awaited the album for review. However once I got the album out of the envelope, I couldn’t help but be taken aback by what looked like some kind of Rolf Harris archive picture. I have to admit, that image seriously tainted my initial impression of the album. Silly I know, but it did. This is the third review I’ve written for “Will See You Know”. The first two, were written in quick succession and promptly trashed. I decided to put the album aside for a while, because I knew (stupid though it sounds), that I wouldn’t be able to review it fairly, at that time anyway.

So here I am 2 months later, staring again at a Rolf Harris wannabe and just smiling at myself on how stupid I am. The picture has nothing to do with the music within and I’m over the bump and raring to go.

This is one of those albums I can imagine being played non stop in Ibiza during the summer, it’s just got that real, light and free vibe. It’s been a long time since I cut a rug on the dance floor (I don’t really talk like that, honest), but I think I still know good electronic dance when I hear it.

This isn’t an album to be broken down track by track, the album just works, but I do admit having a certain fondness for the tracks “Amplified Heart” and “Evolution” which is an amazing pumping, thumping, roller coaster of a song, especially when listened to on a good set of headphones.

Conclusion : This is a cracking, rhythm filled, electronic album, which at the very least will have you tapping your toes. Maybe mid winter isn’t the best time to review this album, but then again maybe it’s a good scene setter and a reminder for the summer to come.
