Young Flux "Break Apart"

Young Flux "Break Apart"
There's not much to tell you about this Toronto-based trio other than their names are Bill, Roozbeh and Richard, they umm, "invented gravity," and sound like "Giorgio Moroder being assaulted by a crystal meth addict." The latter isn't the case for all of their songs; they don't seem stuck to any sort of songwriting fashion. One minute the band put a 21st century spin on the Velvets' patented strum-athon, while the next they're joining hands in the same processed electro/angular rock marriage that made Handsome Furs more than a Wolf Parade side project. But "Break Apart" seems to be where their ambition lies; vintage synths bubble with the same zip as Moroder's From Here to Eternity. It's not exactly at the rate you can dance to with a smile on your face, but the off-key group chorus and sporadic angular guitar chops is the stuff that tastemakers drool for. These guys seem destined for a Kitsuné Maison in the not-so-distant future...
