The Rakes

The Rakes were new at me although They're rocking since a few years, - i had the luck to know Them thanks to Work, Work, Work (Pub, Club, Sleep) video. Frankly, They didn't impress me all that much at a first listen, even because i was totally taken with the girl acting, and more, i'm a little pissed off about this new_new-wave wannabe scene (from Bloc Party, to the Editors, to go on).. btw, some days later i found myself in the elevator, and suddenly a leit motif started playing in my head: It's all these words, ideas and different arguments / Someone's always talking when I try to make some sense, - oh mygods, i was lost, - no way to think of something else. Kind of delayed action_effect. So, the Music. It's deeply angular heritage of british post-punk. You can hear traces of Bauhaus (guitars on Terror!), the Clash (Violent), the Pulp (Binary Love, Work, Work, Work..), early Cure (Open Book), and Adam ant the Ants, - a perfect balance of pop and new-wave wilderness, always kept elegant thanks to lead singer's apathetic voice (- an authentic london accent -), long detailed lyrics, and by an high attention for sounds and mixing. All plays bright, - You'll feel free to dance and mosh, smiling or just moving discretely Your feet.
