While the entire country is falling over itself as a response to the visceral energy of the new wave from the States, it'd do well to heed the burst of energy released by Brighton's Electrelane. A self-released album by four improbably young women, Rock It to the Moon bristles with a vertiginous speed that conjures all kinds of allusions: sexy instrumentals to Sixties spy films, surf bands and the best of punk. It can come as a surprise when the band drop their organ-driven vistas for more gentle moments, but either way, Electrelane – whose EP Film Music is also released this week – are well-worth watching closely.
