Multiple Man - Body Double 7" (Major Crimes AUSTRALIA)


Brisbane synth punk duo!!! 

"Just when you think you've heard everything Australia has to offer, along comes a label and a bunch of bands to prove you wrong, in this case Major Crimes and this batch of 7"es of Big Richard Insect, Old Mates and this debut release from Adelaide synth-punk duo Multiple Man. These brothers (killer band name once you realize they are twins) unleash two synth monsters here that will mop up some of the drool coming from Total Control fans' mouths while they wait for a new LP. "Body Double" is the dancefloor number, gigantic hook, monotone vox, eerie echoed-out keys, very dark New Wave/Romantic channeling. I like the B-Side even more - "Surface Roads" is a deep motorik-esque instrumental with a needly guitar bit lodged into a massive multi-synth rhythm that's deeeeeeep shit, like a modernized Tangerine Dream soundtrack (wait, that would be the soundtrack to Drive then...) theme. Very very killer tracks here, and the twins/multiples/double theme is actually a bit creepy in a Cronenberg way after repeat spins. Bonus points for reminding me of Jamie Madrox.(RK) TERMINAL BOREDOM
