i love you records
25/05/2013, Filip VAN MUYLEM

This is the very first release of Zebra Island, one of the newest Estonian bands. The first thing that comes to my head is in the mix feeling: 'Hooverphonic' versus 'SX' and that is really heads up. i can say it in another way: this is how i would love to hear the new sound of Hooverphonic, so can i be more positive about this new record? Nah, i don't think so. It's so heavenly and haunting...

'Everything might' is simply the best track on the album, sounds a bit into New Wave with a triphop sauce on top of it, has a catchy sound and makes you dream nice things... 'Thank yourself' is more into electronics and has some kind of a kinky retro sound (very into Hooverphonic), and very slow mo/mellow. 'Dreams' could be the next single of Hooverphonic, but a bit overworked with retro synths. This song is indeed a loveley dream away song with happy lyrics. 'Don't look now' has more a SX touch, however the lyrics are very happy and the sound very dreampop and catchy. 'Falling down' has somehow a more french touch regarding the vocals. The retro sound keeps being very attractive and still steals my attention. The rythm is a bit higher with this one too. 'Gotcha' has a more chaotic and dreamwave sound, with a bit more of a lamenting voice. Here it's more Breath of life versus The Cranes. 'Silence' and 'Glow' caught me so hard that i even forgot to write more about them, simply great! The last song 'Not alone' is a nice endsong, getting the rythm a bit more uptempo and still keeping us in dreamland (with a bit of a musical Bjork twist in the synths/beats as you can hear in' Violently happy', but then a bit slower).

One thing is for sure, now that i will miss Metsatöll on stage, for sure, during our summer holliday in Estonia: i hope to catch them together with Sibyl Vane... and come back with a very happy feeling (just as a conformation as the vibes i got during the listening to this cd).
