Fantastic Reviews For Well-Oiled Machine

"In short, into this Well-Oiled Machine they put: electronic + fab vocals + some screaming + catchy tunes + noise = Sheer and utter genius." This is Fake DIY

Debut album 'Well-Oiled Machine' from Belfast's Clone Quartet is going down a storm with festive reviewers. Here's a short selection:

"Clone Quartet have made an absolute classic of a debut album which really has depth variety and fun. This is all capped off with great production and song writing skills. ‘Well-Oiled Machine’ is indeed slick, sexy and friggin’ catchy. This album is an essential purchase this year." The Plastic Ashtray

"Clone Quartet have brought loads of savvy and style to their first album... the guitar lines are instantly attractive and the vocals work on many levels - like those wonderful old Cure and New Order records. The synth lines are charmingly wonky and the piston whoosh of the drums sounds class.  All this and the best-dressed record sleeve in town. The Clones are unique." ATL

"'Well-Oiled Machine' is a grammatically perfect title and a deadly efficient long-player. Clone Quartet and their eleven offerings throw up something surprisingly fresh. Undying and unapologetic in its poppiness, 'Well-Oiled Machine' licks you behind the ears like an over-affectionate puppy. It makes you feel soggy and nostalgic, like Múm's Icelandic soundscapes being scythed by the surging, triumphant square wave of progress (see '10 Lies'). But secretly you love it to bits. And this kind of love is a very, very good feeling."iShot the Deputy
