Telex are a new quintet from the UK who exhibit the same qualities as 'Kid A'-period Radiohead. So if woozy passages of guitar, electronic fragments and large chunks of melancholia are called for, they fit the bill perfectly. The EP makes for a very promising start. Granted, frontman Andrew Kyriakou's vocals veer towards the aloof and austere but in actual fact he's the perfect foil for Telex's misery-tinged experimental rock. 'Motion Sickness' seems to borrow its guitar melody from 'Paranoid Android', 'Reverberation' showcases their more electronic, subversive side and 'System' features a compelling organ drone. 'Byp/Ctrl' is engulfed by an inescapable sense of sadness and fear but it's still involving and fascinating to listen to.
