Product Description

It’s a rare boon to find a reunited band who’ve matured without becoming dull. The Monochrome Set, formed in Hornsey, north London in 1978, were early proponents of jangly ’80s indie with a bit of new-wave spike; they stuttered to a halt several times but came back renewed in 2012. ‘Spaces Everywhere’, their third album since returning, is spooky, catch, skiffly pop, swinging between scratchy rockabilly on ‘Iceman’, big Who-like crescendos on ‘Avenue’ and, on ‘The Z-Train’, adventures in Coral-esque psych. Throughout, singer Bid’s smooth baritone paints intriguing vignettes (“He was the best thing that you’ve ever seen in Swansea”, goes ‘When I Get To Hollywood’), adding colour to an already rich album.
