Formed from the ashes of the amusingly titled Living with Eating Disorders, Colt combine Kate Bushisms with mannerisms of Cocteau Twins and their ilk. There is a clear Portishead vibe here as well, which is not a bad thing at all.

This is seriously odd shit that, while surreal, is still intriguing. I guarantee it will take a few listens to determine if you love or loath this outing. It’s that challenging.

First they are to be admired for such a release. .. no shock it will come out on Halloween because it is sure to cause some nightmares.

You doubt me, check out ‘Feeling’ with its ethreal female-voiced (Andrea Kerr) menace or ‘Lullaby’. This lot like the creepy.

The collection ends with ‘Deaths & Sequins’, which could easily be a goth dancefloor hit if it got into the right hands. With a bit of investment this is a very rewarding … a few nightmares are worth the effort, right?
