UK Music Review On 'Well-Oiled Machine'

'Creating a sound akin to The Killers being locked in a room with The Psychedelic Furs and forced to write a bunch of unashamedly indie pop songs, Clone Quartet are a Belfast four piece with a keen ear for a tune.'

Creating a sound akin to The Killers being locked in a room with The Psychedelic Furs and forced to write a bunch of unashamedly indie pop songs, Clone Quartet are a Belfast four piece with a keen ear for a tune.
Latest single "Won't Somebody Please" is taken from debut album 'Well-Oiled Machine' a record taking its cues from eighties synth pop. Traces of The Human League, Duran Duran and Tubeway Army, but also with a darker post-punk element to it; echoes of Joy Division and Wire. 
"Won't Somebody Please" imagines Babyshambles getting roughed up by Dinosaur Jr in the mid eighties US college rock scene whilst flipside "Played To Death" features screeching vocal outbursts and indie rocking guitar work, Clone Quartet letting loose with an energised live sounding side to their work. Hopefully, bound for great things, Clone Quartet are a band that, if there's any justice in the world will emerge as conquering heroes of the indie rocking electro pop scene.
