With three well-received albums to their name and a massive fan in the form of the legendary David Bowie it's surprising to find that this Antwerp based outfit remain relatively unknown.
Simplistic in terms of arrangement and fairly minimalist (for the most part), the Natural Regression EP would have been an utter disaster if it wasn't for the glorious vocal hooks and warped, yet digestible experimentation.
Even though lead singer Pascal Deweze annoyingly conjures up thoughts of Sting in the opener 'You Kill Me' the song remains ridiculously catchy and enjoyable. Next up, the most reserved of the four songs (and reminiscent of Beck) 'Beauty Is Here' shows Sukilove are capable of altering their sound to great effect. Things take a darker turn (in a QOTSA manner) with 'Headfire', before live track 'Pretty Kitty' brings an end to the EP with a bizarre multi-sample intro and crazy lyricism throughout.
You might find yourself cross-referencing Sukilove's work with that of others, but oddly enough, there doesn't seem to be anything contrived about this Belgian outfit's songwriting. In the end, the Natural Regression EP is a refreshing surprise.
