The Deep End
Sounding a bit, okay, a lot like Crystal Castles, Curses! are the latest act to attempt the shit-on-paper-but-somehow-works fusion of dance beats, plucky indie guitars and early 90’s keys (the genre soon to be known as ‘Isn’t That New Order?’). Although frankly forgettable, `The Deep End`, with its happy combo of jarring, staggering bass, glowstick happy keys and sparse vocals, certainly fits the mould as far as NYC-based indie-dance goes. Which is all well and good, but does beg the question: "how many indie-dance scenester acts does it take to saturate a genre?" Only time will tell.
