Album Review

Taking their cue from dance-driven '80s bands like Depeche Mode and Duran Duran, London's White Rose Movement apes the best aspects of their predecessors, reveling in edgy dance-punk riffs and swaggering vocals laced with gyrating synth beats. Unlike their peers in Franz Ferdinand, the Rakes, and Bloc Party, however, White Rose Movement's debut never really found ground in the States despite its arguably better quality of songs. U.K. singles "Girls in the Back," a sharp, speedy number with a hooky chorus, and "Love Is a Number," a layered, synth-based track with echoing vocals, is immediately memorable, reverberating with more attitude than all the previously mentioned bands put together. "Cruella" is the album's real standout, buried at the end of the disc, and led by an aggressive, propulsive beat and singer Finn Vine's strutting hoot as he hollers about the notorious 101 Dalmatians villain. It's regrettable that no U.S. labels picked up on White Rose Movement before they were lost in the shuffle of British '80s revival bands, particularly after they played several festivals in the States supporting this album, but with any luck their next release won't suffer the same fate.

Customer Reviews

this is what good music sounds like!

Best described as a band that sound like The Human League's "Sound of the Crowd". These guys were great supporting the Rakes in February. They're much more interesting than most of the other derivative new bands out there at the moment!

Band of the year!

Fantastic! I first heard them back a few months ago and loved their singles. Combines electron synths perfectly with indie rock whilst Vine's voice enhances the whole effect to create one of the best bands i've heard in years. The album 'Kick' shows the wide range of sounds and styles that White Rose Movement are capable of and i've heard that they are also amazing live (Come back to Birmingham). Brillliant album, if you ever find £7.99 lying down the back of the sofa, buy it.

WOW!!

Id already heard a few of these songs a few months ago thanks to iTunes. A few weeks ago i was lucky enough to see them supporting placebo at blackpool and they were amazing! I have been waiting for this album for months and it dosent disapoint! Every song is fantastic and unique. Definately worth the wait! and a great live band!
