Do Yourself In

May 20, 2014 Web Exclusive Bookmark and Share

When is a Bis album not really a Bis album? When it’s actually a Data Panik album. The Glasgow trio’s fourth LP since unleashing their maniacal indie-electro-pop on the world in the mid ‘90s, data Panik etcetera is a re-styling of material made during a lengthy career pitstop (during which they briefly went under the name Data Panik).

What this means is that those expecting a fresh haul of output are likely to be left disappointed. But for those not so close to the ins and outs of a band that’s managed to stay effortlessly hip through the ages (despite creating The Powerpuff Girls theme tune), there’s enough here to warrant renewed intrigue.

At its core, this is Bis at its most basic: the tunes are sweet, the electronics skewered, and the lyrics as non-committal as ever. But despite obvious traces of the band’s DNA existing in angular dancefloor-friendly cuts like “Control the Radical” and “Mechanical Love,” there are hints of a freshened sonic palette.

The technotronic glitchfest of “Cubis (I Love You)” is a prime attempt at shape-shifting, and definite strains of goth-pop exist in the dark synth swarms of “The Young Mothers.” Whether it’s enough to conquer new audiences remains to be seen. But by creating a Bis album that’s more than just a Bis album, they may just stand a chance. (
