Sweden’s The Electric Pop Group make their debut on Matinee, two years down the line from their debut album.
I Could See The Lights is very jangly, sun kissed pop, which barely lifts from its slumbers during its duration. This Is The Town is similar sounding, the singer sounding pretty tired and non-emotional. Moving on to Summer’s Day it flags up the problem with this EP. For all its crystalline beauty, it is all too similar to the other tracks. It’s bearable over the course of a four track EP, but would be a whole different kettle of fish over an album’s length.
