Voltaire Twins – D.I.L (mp3)
I’m not really at the forefront of the new electro/indie-nu-rave thing that seems to be happening in Australia and indeed the world at the moment. Frankly some of it makes me sick-up in my mouth just a little bit.
One act that I do find as pleasing as a pack of quick ease and a glass of milk however, is brother-sister duo the Voltaire Twins. It seems that amongst a crowd of mediocrity they’ve not forgotten that melody and actual hooks are important in writing a catchy tune.
The Voltaire Twins’ debut single D.I.L. is set for release sometime soon (apparently the middle of the year) and the three tracks I’ve heard off it certainly put it head and shoulders above some of their ‘shout lyric, play chord, shout lyric’ comrades.
