The 80's postpunk and British indie music slowly but steadily make a comeback. Bands like Interpol, Radio 4, Astral and The Stills use the musical heritage of the 80's in a refreshing way in their modern alternative music. References to The Smiths, Suicide, Joy Division and The Cure are hip again. Now we have something hot again with The Search. Sweden's newest export, The Search, proves with their debut album that you don't need to be noisy or extravagant in order to do the job.
Their sound brings to mind influences from eighties bands such as The Cure, Joy Division and Sad Lovers & Giants. The band combines a very crisp wavy guitar approach with a classic rhythmic backbone consisting of bass, drums and keys. Their prog-post-punk sound makes the experience of listening to this album one that you wish to repeat over and over. Throughout the album the powerful strums of the bass and synthesizer, absolutely separates their music from other bands-being their strongest element.
Overall, this is a good post-punk tune that builds nicely to a climactic frenzy then fades out slowly. Don't miss out on this one!
