Them Clones- Love.Hate.Heroes

Thursday, June 2, 2011




Delhi based five-piece Them Clones certainly don’t show any nuance on this release.  But then, nuance is not something to be admired when you’re making highly equipped Alt-rock that’s designed to stimulate auditory hemorrhage.  Love.Hate.Heroes opens with a powerful ambience followed by a short keyboard maneuver which then continues to turn up the volume.  ‘My life’, with its chant-like vocals and heavy 90’s feel speeds along like a runaway train, giving a threatening edge to the album.  ‘The Bomb Song’ has a strong Modern Rock feel, but somehow seems less sophisticated, a rocker; and then in ‘Spunk’ and ‘Sindrome’ we return to the dark Alternative roots.  It’s only with closing track ‘Zephyretta’ that Them Clones show the same level of originality that they did in the opener. This is the rawest song on the album, and perfectly shows their ability to adopt a rougher style with regards song-writing.  Breezy bass-lines and vocals fight to make themselves heard over the dazzling rhythm section.  The mood of this album is well maintained throughout – it’s somehow both airy and cavernous; if Them Clones can polish all of their tracks to the same moniker then they should have a winning formula.
