Inertia - Repeat & Follow
EBM, Electro Wow, blast from the past anyone? I haven't heard anything from Inertia since 2002 when they did some releases and I saw them perform live in a club and all I remember is that it was a hot chick in hotpants on drumpads. Well, enough about that.

Since 2002 they have released some a cover album, a compilation and a few official releases, none of which I heard. So let's head straight to the new single 'Repeat & Follow' and accompany me in my journey 10 years back to the future.

'Repeat & Follow' is actually a pretty strong track. It got a nice solid beat, distorted industrial guitars and the mixed up vocals both male and female sounds really good. It's a dance floor tune by all means and it's easy to memorize and like. Still, it's not that great that you want to listen over and over again to all the six remixes of that song. I understand that it is a DJ thing, but as a listener, it's simply too much with to little variation and if it is variation, it?s not good enough. I really do like the "Bariuz Mix" of it though, great work by the Code 64 singer.

Part from the seven versions of "Repeat & Follow", there's also a track called "Fallout" and that track is pretty good as well, a bit slower and more subtle than "Repeat & Follow" and the vocals are not over the top awesome, but all and all a good tune with a great chorus.

All and all an interesting single release and it actually got me interested in future releases from the band and this time it perhaps won't take me another 10 years to give them a listening.
