Blue and green record exploding into shards

Dance Lazarus Dance
We Put the Fun in Fundamentalist

One for fans of The Automatic, Dance Lazarus Dance have the unadorned voice meets tongue-in-cheek screams that has done The Automatic proud for a good five minutes.

It is well put together, with the keyboards approaching Guided By Voices territory at times, and the chorus would be worthy of a Fall Out Boy album track, but ‘We Put the Fun…’ just isn’t recognisable as a distinct song.

DLD are the ‘young cousins’ of some good bands, but they don’t have that crazy little thing called ‘edge’ going by this release.
