Album Review

Gaptooth
Connections/Departures

Article written by Michael H - Nov 21, 2013

Gaptooth’s debut album ‘Connections/Departures’ is the product of much travel and experience, reflected in an eclectic approach encompassing pop, rock, and a few sophisticated steppas. In the main, it goes for throbbing electro pop, slick and propulsive. It stands out from the crowd by virtue of a sharp lyrical edge, addressing sexism and laddish nonsense on “ladykillers” or the troubles of growing up with “I’ve only just fell from the womb, all wet and screaming; now I’m supposed to be a functioning adult”. The album drifts troublingly close to sounding like Republica on a couple of tracks; however, the best have a spinning Junior Boys inventiveness mixed with the giddy sugar rush of Pet Shop Boys. A range of moods and pace is explored, from flickering dance tunes to dour balladry; it doesn’t lack ideas or direction. ‘Connections/Departures’ is a promising introduction to an artist who will no doubt have more to say on future albums.
