Chain Wallet

No Ritual

Mixing New Wave style anthemic pop hooks with jangly chorused guitars and New Age lyrics, the Norwegian dream pop group Chain Wallet strive for profundity amidst the dizzying headrush of '80s nostalgia. The sections in the songs are tight and the gated reverb snare is equalized perfectly, but after the first time hearing the surging, oceanic drums bob under the slick sheen of a by now grossly overused guitar effect you begin to feel that some heart is missing from these tracks and that it is yet another instance of fetishization of the recent past.

Can a review be both overwrought AND incredibly lazy? Why yes, yes it can.
