!!! - Shake The Shudder

by Rob Jones Rating:8 Release Date:2017-05-19

Shake the Shudder has the !!! groove gurus in fine fettle. An indie pop leaning vs dance floor preening is hotter and more chipper than Hot Chip. A strutting your stuff stance is the order of the day here. !!! has proven across several albums that their sonic style deserves more attention. Their cutting edge stance is less noticeable but a more commercial sheen is certainly to the fore. A more heavy reliance on female led vocals is also more evident but what is crystal clear is that the world needs to take note of !!! as they are one of the great alternative funky bands of our time!

Across a series of releases they have continued to deliver killer cuts awash with resplendent rhythms and infectious injections. Louden up Now is one of the finest records of our era and, their new Shake the Shudder work on Warp Records goes straight for the jugular of gyration!

Trademark touches will have appeal to fans of US brethren such as LCD Soundsystem and The Rapture but there is much more to admire. The charts should be awash with these sumptuous sonics that traverse from the influence of a Saturday Night Fever 70’s soundtrack through the technological time machine and into the future!

!!! demonstrate a diligent diversity with a series of vocalist switches and variable rhythms. The rest of the record follows suit with sonic standards maintained and a polished production adding to the appeal. The !!! DNA is stamped with punk abandon and dance autonomy and from this release the listener will have every desire to seek out the other six !!! long players! Pure pop for now people!!!
