NUMBER STATION

★★★

A BLAST FROM THE PAST

LATEST REVIEWS
By Charlie David Page
26th November 2014
Number Station first hit my radar a few years ago, with their EP 'Everything Will Change'. At the time, the band's focus lay toward the pop-rock genre. Having had the chance to take in their new EP 'Back Seat', their work is as polished as ever, and yet one thing is perfectly clear - their new music is an unapologetic ode to the 80s.

If for no other reason, check out this EP for the opening track 'The Money'; it's an addictive and transfixing tune. Singer Chris Andrews' vocals float tenderly over determined synth keys and an electrifying guitar riff. It also extrudes a compelling groove that promises to take you on a vivid journey.

NUMBER STATION - THE MONEY (AUDIO)

The rest of the album is an intense, tightly packed offering. 'Get Out Of Your Own Way' delivers a laid-back beat with an unrelenting bassline. 'Our Friends' is a catchy song with a reverb-laiden chorus, embracing 80s power pop (in the best way possible).

Inarguably, this is an audacious venture for Number Station. Don't let the 80s sounds fool you; this is still the same tight tunes and sharp songwriting I first heard from the band. If you get the chance, check out their live (and free) show at the St Kilda Bowls Club on the 14th December; after all, what's old is new again.
