:: Intervurt ::
21 January 2008 / No Label Required / Dead Planet / 4 Trk CD

MM first came across Intervurt’s demo in the earliest days of this century. Their first single proper in 2002 was a hit on this site, but the follow up a couple of years later was savaged by one of our intern reviewers - maybe rather unfairly. But I’m more than happy to report that Intervurt are as big and strong as ever; their monumental sound has matured purely by being tighter, more measured and in many respects, louder. This is a ruthlessly broad indie symphony over which the vocals weave an intense, attractive sheen of melody and bitter, barking vocals. “Translucent” is a hybrid of gloomy 80’s pomp and giddy modern indie rock, with the harmonies all smoothly and intricately layered between collapsing walls of guitars. The genius of idols like Bowie aren’t lost on this outfit nor is the need for consistency ; by the time they hit “City Of Moods” they’ve growled, swam in luscious interludes of synths and kicked over a few bar stools for good measure. Intervurt mysteriously still seem like a well kept secret – well, there’s reason enough here to investigate them further while you can.
