Roger - Kiss in the Darkness/Boys Of Scandinavia - Worse Than A Girl - Single Review
Roger
Kiss in the Darkness/Boys Of Scandinavia; Worse Than A Girl
(AA single; Mate Recordings 06/06/2005)

The bouncing and saucy electro discoof Finnish sound manipulator Teemu Metsala brings the spirit and catchiness of Human League up to date, leaving behind the needless pretension. ‘Kiss In The Darkness’ unites the electro and pop genre as though they had a bitter fight years ago and have finally decided to let bygones be bygones. The distorted spacey vocals coupled with bouncy and zapping electro instrumentals provide for an inhibition shaking and upbeat mood. Having toured with revered electro mainstay John Foxx; Roger will continue to catch the eye and sway bodies with this niftynumber.

Slow melodious disco/pop provided via slowed down Brandon Boyd like vocals with a dabble of Underworld, John Foxx and Kraftwerk style maudlin electro and twanging bass lines gives the Boys Of Scadinavia a funky feel. ‘Worse Than Girl’ is a pleasing and even tempo offering from this Finland outfit who boast none other than Roger’s Teemu Metsala asco-producer.
