quick take : soft kill : an open door

06 May 2011 · No Comments

Department of cheap shots: Does this sound more like Joy Division circa Closer, or like New Order circa Movement? Okay, I’ll concede some Chameleons UK in the mix, too. But the album cover sure screams “Factory!”:
Soft Kill - An Open Door
vs., for instance:
Joy Division - Still
p.s. It’s not bad. Just shameless. And the album cover tends to make me discount the “these folks are too young to know what they’re derivative of” hypothesis.
