Genre: Rock/Pop
Release Date: 1998

Review by DjBatman
3½ stars out of 4

A dark orchestral arrangement accompanies the title track on this single. Sounds like one of Pet Shop Boys' efforts from mid 80's, but the retro feel doesn't last as you are suddenly driven into a different ambiance, with trip-hop atmospheres, in "Orange", a relaxing instrumental. The last track, "Face it", shows the band's ability to perform a perfect indie number that could have come out of the Manchester scene in 1990. Spotted: former Art of Noise member Gary Langan as a sound engineer. Apparently crossing freely between indie rock, dark synthpop, electronica (they have been remixed by folks like David Holmes) and much more, The Aloof appear as one of the most promising acts of the late 90's.
