    The only album released by kiwi band Ebony Sye is flippin’ awesome; perhaps something like a cross between the arty prog of Cockney Rebel, the post-punk-meets-goth of Siouxsie and the Banshees and the dark-wave dance of Classix Nouveaux!

    Tracks like, “The Show”, “Staring At Me”, “The Visitor” and “Girl At School” are definitely in a new wave/new romantic vein with layers of atmospheric synths, 80’s drum effects, jagged guitars and tortured artist vocals. My favourites are the charging, guitar driven anthem “Can’t Blame Rock ‘n’ Roll”, the crazy Associates-like “Party At My House” and the pounding, bass-orgy finale “I’d Hate To Be”.
