Bathrobe Robots – Eponymous – Single Review

The US alt-electro duo Bathrobe Robots released their début eponymous three track single on the 7th.

Bathrobe Robots

Bathrobe Robots

Opening with Cannibals a cathartic just over three minutes of blips and squiggles which are – like a dot to dot puzzle connected by the guitar and fluid vocal with a pulsing beat that rises and falls which coils around the listener as though the Asp biting Cleopatra. My pick of the release.

Next is Be Somebody (Acoustic) the term ‘acoustic’ is loosely applied as the electronic loops revolve like cathode rays in a vacuum led around the room by acoustic guitar as the duo of voices wax and wane between one another whilst the finesse is the percussion that trips off the rims and the audience finds themselves involuntarily tapping fingers in quick time to provide their own accompaniment – more than worth the price of admission on its own.

The closer is Egyptian Annie another intriguing number that is a full minute shorter than the previous tracks, yet due to the packing contains as much inflection as the other two songs with its bouncing beat skipping around the room whilst the listener joins in with the rise and fall.

Bathrobe Robots have opened their account with an expansive spread of styles and technique, each of which they deliver with deft hand and it will be interesting to discover where they thread for the future.

The only sadness with Bathrobe Robots is that they are so new there are only three tracks around – so you have been through the whole repertoire and I look forward to being able to hear more in short order.
