By Luxury Car
Perth (Scotland not Oz) trio Luxury Car provide an excellent glimpse into their electronic world throughout this four song debut. The band's sound conjures up impressions of Joy Division and early New Order with plenty of contemporary references to keep it well above a simple history lesson. Lead track "The Heart of The Matter" is fine in its duties as scene setter but the real gems ironically come from b-sides "Out of Focus" which sounds like the New FADS using a new drum machine, and closer "In The Event" which is a real retro trip back to the early days of the Hacienda replete with a snare sound straight out of "Blue Monday".
With an increasingly impressive live pedigree, plenty of imagination and a clear ear for a sound that could just be set for a comeback, this is unlikely to be the last we hear from Luxury Car.
