New Black Light Machine
Myspace // "Light Burns Black" [Audio]
London group New Black Light Machine has done their studying, falling in line nicely with contemporaries like These New Puritans. They're just as good, but not as pretentious -- always a good thing. Young bands tend to show their influences a bit too much, and this outfit is no different, but the best thing about them is that they look forward as much as they do to those that laid the groundwork for them. With one promising demo collection under their belts, the band should continue marrying the early sounds of Idlewild with dark romanticism for years to come.
