Ok, it may not sustain those early thrills for its entirety but Electrelaneâ€™s â€˜To The Eastâ€™ is one mighty jaunt into the realms of sonic caviar. The all girl group from Brighton took to Berlin to write their new album â€˜No Shouts No Callsâ€™. Their stay coincided with the world cup and itâ€™s influence can be heard on songs like â€˜Fiveâ€™. â€˜To The Eastâ€™ is the albumâ€™s lead track that initially cuts a distinct â€˜Rebellion (Lies)â€™ jib until in strolls Emma Gazeâ€™s frothy vocals and a haunted castle organ scene-stealer. The chiming chords are another essential ingredient to the songâ€™s success, so much so that at a certain angle â€˜To The Eastâ€™ sounds like a lost Stereolab classic. Praise indeed but an indication of what Electrelane have been threatening to achieve for several years. KD
