Dark Room Notes – Dark Room Notes

After being nominated for the Choice Music Prize (basically Ireland’s version of the UK’s Mercury Prize) for their debut album, We Love You Dark Matter, Dark Room Notes is back with their self-titled sophomore effort…and it’s more of the same.

The electro-synthpop that has become synonymous with the Dark Room Notes brand is in full effect on this record. Due to the departure of the band’s drummer, Darragh Shanahan, the album’s sound is even more polished, with every beat, texture and accent processed to the point of perfection. Ultimately, this inorganic approach makes everything seem a bit stale and robotic.

Kudos for having the balls to sample “What Is Love” by Haddaway, though.
