SOUVENIRS - Posture Of Apology LP

SGD 36.00

Much like their contemporaries Balance and Composure and Turnover, former emo revivalists Souvenirs have replaced their previous sound in favour of 80s inspired indie rock. Like Turnover, they borrow from dream pop and post-punk on this album although it's nowhere near as overt as Peripheral Vision. The thin, delicate guitar tones are reminiscent of bands like Slowdive but the reverb and wall of sound effects are dialed down letting the crunchier post-punky riffs shine through. There are also understated synths sprinkled throughout this record, accentuating the rhythm section on about half the songs here, which is a nice touch considering you don't really hear this sound by bands in this scene. Definitely a grower of an album; it took some time to figure out what the band was going for in retreating from a somewhat more aggressive emo rock band to one informed much more by dream pop, gentle emo and indie pop, but it is surely worth the wait. Overall, this is a pretty downbeat, chilled out record perfect for walks at night and a commendable effort from the band.
