Eyes Lips Eyes = The Rapture + Franz Ferdinand
This album is composed of the 12 singles that Eyes Lips Eyes released each month for an entire year. As a result, each song stands alone as a catchy dance track, with the exception of the slower “Bear Trap,” which relies on a steady bass line to drive the song along —but it’s refreshing after four dance-floor ready songs and a cover of Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer.” Then there’s “Losing My Head,” with the most delicate guitar riff on the album, and “False Prophet” brings Red Hot Chili Peppers to mind. “Tickle” is my favorite song on the album by far, and I still have that giddy guitar riff stuck in my head.
