Doldrums – ‘The Air Conditioned Nightmare’ Album Review

April 9, 2015


Doldrums – The Air Conditioned Nightmare
So this is the first time I’ve listened to Doldrums despite this being their second album, and the only thing I’m disappointed with, is the fact I haven’t found them sooner!
Their music is a blend of genres; carrying the ambience of electronic and the party sound of 90’s warehouse together in songs like HOTFOOT, Loop, My Friend Simjen and Industry City – all of which are predicted crowd pleasers of the album for me.
Throughout the album hard bass drums and a sub pop intrinsic daze of noise creates bright and nostalgic sounds that are something I could imagine dancing late into the night to at summer festivals or an underground club jam. (Think “We Awake” and “Closer 2 U” for festivals in particular).
Set for release in early April and playing shows across the UK in May, I think this American sub pop dance band would resonate really well into a live environment so are most likely worth a watch as well a good listen.
If you like Grimes, Mogwai and Little Dragon, then you might love this.
