"14 Days,” the opening track of New Yorkers Science For Girls’ self-titled debut, teases the listener into thinking this could finally be the next Moon Safari. With acoustic guitars over a delicate chanteuse voice and sophisticated-style saxophones, the song plays it simple in a way Air have long forgotten. Unfortunately, the album quickly veers into the diverse organic electro chill vein of Zero 7/Imogen Heap. Bandleader Darren Solomon has provided the music for numerous TV commercials and the album plays out like a possible mixed-tape of catchy singles. Taken as a whole, however, and having each song sung by a different New York indie artist, it makes for a slightly unbalanced album but one that will have Grey’s fans swooning. A certain silly ratio is found in the Daft Punk-style vocoder on "You’ll Never Know” but the rest of the album is a fairly soulful listen. The best moment is the jangle-y ode to the land down under, "Australia,” in which Paul Brill takes the listener on an Aussie adventure that Qantas will no doubt capitalise on. (Team Clermont)
