My Tiger My Timing : Celeste : album review

My Tiger My Timing – Celeste (Snakes & Ladders)
Available now

The debut album from My Tiger My Timing is from the wrong side of the pop tracks; electro beats emerging from the shadows into the light of glowing post-punk.  

The opening shimmer of My Tiger My Timing’s debut album Celeste puts a pop in your hip and a tap in your foot as electro beats punch through the soft harmonies.

This is pop from the wrong side of the tracks – seemingly innocent but oh so tempting with the hint of a filthy beat and a bubbling excitement of a riff. It’s also hard to pin down and pigeonhole, but that’s no bad thing.

It sways along from summery pop to reggae beats and grimy electro iced with a gentle vocal and a flirtation with post-punk. Lead single The Gold Rush mines ’80s new wave and pop, it could be as at home on a homemade C90 compilation of Mark Goodier’s Chart Show as it will be in the hipster bars over the coming months.

There’s a definite sound to MTMT but they throw in enough variation to keep the album flowing while sparking interest. Here a tribal beat, there overlaid harmonies of a duelling vocal, further still a tripping synth.

Endless Summer is running along a dirt track barefoot laughing until your sides hurt before feeling the melancholia of moment lived only in memory. Album closer Memories of Earth open up the sound and provide a soundtrack for those who’s only dance floor partner is the spinning glitter of the mirrorball.

It’s pretty, it’s pop but it’s got a darker undertone which intrigues and provides a depth that will allow the album to endure. It might not be a stone cold classic but it’s certainly got form in this year’s alternative indie field.
