Label: Radio One - Project Icarus
Reviewed by Shawn Cameron on Jun 13, 2007
This is the first of a 10 edition 7" series put out by the australian label project icarus. I expecting some good keyboard influenced pop,hardcore, punk music. Here I got mellow atmospheric pop. Don’t get me wrong this is good but im looking forward more to bands like slaves, hot hot heat,red monkey, submission hold, radio berlin and a slew of others. As abonus, subscribers get a button from each band in the series, as well a posterand such. A very good deal. I’d encourage checking out the page at


Both bands put out good mellow pop, with ersatz using an accordion which creates a neat effect. I wouldn’t highly recommend this 7" but the ones to follow I can already whole heartedly do so.
