Kiosk – Stratospheric (CD Review)

Full Title : One Day I’m Going To Go Stratospheric On You and, chances are, You’ll thank Me For It

Absurdly long title aside, ‘Stratospheric’ is a great single that brings old style indie vocals, layered sounds and some delightfully freaky touches together to make a defiantly fuzzy and undeniably cute track. For a debut single this is an excellent start, its rough edges only add to its charisma.


Buy ‘One Day I’m Going To Go Stratospheric On You and, chances are, You’ll thank Me For It’ from Amazon.co.uk

The good form continues on ‘Sickblues’, which does exactly what it says on the tin and with aplomb too. ‘Daylight Robbery’ may sound like it is going to become ‘Suspicious Minds’ to begin with but instead becomes a kind of indie torch song that is beguiling. Finally, we have ‘Make It Stop’ that sounds like Catatonia getting heavy on the guitars and freaky on the sound effects. Its Wonderful stuff all round.

Kiosk are going to release their debut album in June 2005.
