Red Brick Heart

By (We Are) Performance

Described by some as synth pop for the noughties generation, to me Performance's new album, 'Red Brick Heart' is the best case for leaving the genre behind. Likened to New Order and The Associates they remind me more of a bad night out in a Gatecrasher's "alternative room". Filled with clich? anthemic choruses 'Red Brick Heart' brings nothing new to a genre that has had a somewhat touch and go past apart from an overwhelming sense of mediocrity. With empty and mundane lyrics such as 'they are always having fun/ they are doing crazy things/ they are strapping themselves in/ they are hiring several cars' and with vocals reminiscent of Scouting for Girls this record is completely forgettable and will be another band relegated to NME's waste basket given a few weeks.
