Weekend – Mirror


The scent of 80’s allure thickens the air and while it is not entirely acrid one does wonder why a band as obviously talented as Weekend don’t attempt to break new ground. On this occasion it is all about the Cure, from the elongated opening instrumental passage, the dullened percussion and that vocal that sails close to a wail. It’s entertaining and for most that will be enough but hearing this stuff second time around (i.e. oldies like me) does get tiresome especially given the extent that that particular decade has infiltrated so many up and comers. The San Francisco act are signed to Slumberland who have been around long enough to know what’s what and their current record together ‘Jinx’ should ensure that this particular acts disintegration is a lifetime away.
