Isolated Atoms hark back to a time when indie rock was all low slung basses and dodgy angular hair cuts. Billed as an‘electro rock’ outfit they borrow heavily from Joy Division/ New Order and The Cure to name but two, but a whole raft of 80‘s names could be added here.

This is the band’s debut EP which features four tracks that sound like you have boarded the TARDIS and gone back 25 odd years to a time when Tom Baker was in charge of the sonic screwdriver and jelly babies. Musically the guys are ok with decent playing and tunes, but there is nothing new or particularly earth shattering to get the juices flowing.

If you were a fan of indie electronica back in the day then this will be right up your street. I wasn’t and this isn’t.
