Fantastic Playroom

Album Review

The sound of flickering, incandescent neon lights captured in song, London electro bad-asses, New Young Pony Club, finally release their highly anticipated debut "Fantastic Playroom"; an incredible clash of electricity, creativity and genius.

Starting with "Get Lucky", a hard-hitting, makeshift blend of polluted lyrics, psychedelic synthesisers and irrepressible dance. Swiftly succeeded by cowbell and handclap anthem "Hiding On The Staircase".

Then to "Ice Cream"; just what the doctor ordered, brain freeze for all. Quickly cured by the explosive, dynamic and racing pacemaker "The Bomb". Sampling the resilient pop-soundclash of Gwen Stefani.

"Jerk Me" is a forceful bulk burst of hi-hat, classic synthesiser and funky bass. Kind of like Blondie amalgamated with Talking Heads, "The Get Go" is a florid rave rupture of colours, neon lights, hard lyrics and stunning bass, and "Talking, Talking" is a supple leisurely track.

The album comes to a close with an explosion of electro; "Grey" a gloomy but brilliant song, establishing that it's not their favourite colour, "Fan" a glorious slow piece of electro-class and "Tight Fit" a solid well-rounded tune.

8/10
