Temposhark - The Invisible Line
Temposhark is a band that sounds very much like Frou Frou which makes sense because they have the same team working with them. The Invisible Line is their first effort and is a pulsing, vibrant effort that leaves you with nothing else to be wanted. So lets skip the introduction and hype and dive directly into what matters, the music.
The first track is a beautifully cocky effort entitled "Don't Mess With Me." Robert Diament has just the voice and the beat of the song only indulges such cocky lyrics as "If you want survival, kneel on my arrival." When followed up by a rather humbling song such as the second track, "Joy" it makes for a near perfect introduction to an album that peaks at its fifth song. Coasting through some more electro-pop beats that sounds like a mix of Imogen Heap and The Faint you get to a song called "Not That Big." Aside from being perfect what makes this song note worthy is that Imogen Heap is featured in it and she in fact is the reason it is perfect. Treating the track as one of her own her passionate, wailing voice combine with the somewhat menacing rhythm and the strong vocals of Diament she makes not only the song but she makes her appearance on the album a reason to buy it. From there you coast through weaker songs like "Crime" and "Battleships" only to arrive at more brilliance. The songs "Little White Lie" and " Invisible Ink" are a tandem of bright spots for the album. Though they are what you have come to expect at this point they are a perfect send off for a great album.
Temposhark apparently decided to make their first album one to remember. The Invisible Line is a damn good debut album. Aside from the lame album art this is one effort you will not want to miss.
