Cue To Recall - Mainland
Futurepop, Synthpop Cue to Recall entered my world in November 2002 when I saw them live at Oslo Synthfestival, the native country of the band. I remember that I during that night said to my friend Martin that this band one day will have a contract. That was the same day that Neurozine.com was born as well. After a few demos I became convinced that they should have a contract soon. But nothing happened in two years.

Nearly two and a half year later I'm sitting here with their debut album in my hand. The German label Electro Shock Records have taken Cue to Recall under their wings. They have taken care of the talent that Bernd and Terje from Norway got. And now in my hands I have the album called 'Mainland'.

Cue to Recall plays futurepop when it's best. With catchy and straight lyrics that sticks like glue and great beats makes me want to dance. When I first glanced at the track list I was first a bit disappointed when I saw that none of my old favourites from the demos was there, but I changed my mind because all these songs are great.

I have listened to this record every day since I got it and I will continue to listen to it. With its honest, straight forward and you are really able to hear the joy behind these creations. Overall this is one of the most interesting releases so far this year.
