6 out of 10
After a short swim over the channel Metafonik arrive with Julie's sensual gasps combining with the pounding electrock sensibilities of Kidedo & Klooz. Equal parts Poe, Jarboe and Radiohead.
Metafonik work much like a well oiled machine; Kidedo & Klootz stoke the fire that keeps Julie's voice thundering along from neuron to neuron via smouldering synapses. Their conjoined effort results in a hopelessly bittersweet dream of Frank Turner's Parisian girl.
So does this transcend, elevate, transform, develop or outdate sound? No, but if you like your music a bit more rocking than Portishead and with more originality than Nouvelle Vague then Metafonik could well be a welcome distraction.
