After the successful ‘Konkylie’ from 2011, high expectations were set for the successor of their second studio album.
A year ago we got the first taste with the striking single ‘Mannequin’.
And then ‘Love and Respect’ came, a very provoking collaboration with Killer Mike that only left us asking for more. Eventually ‘Iodine’ saw the light, which sounds a lot more from what we’re used to listening from WSGM.
In ‘Infinity Pool’ the quartet focused in finding a more experimental sound. Bringing deeper ambient tracks with those howling distinguished synths filled with Nikolaj’s odd stimulating vocals.
The catchy melodies in songs like ‘Kelly’ or ‘Parix’ are hard to find in the new material, nevertheless there is no hesitation that puissant songs appear along the way, for instance ‘System Of Unlimited Love’ and ‘Mental Shopping Spree’. And yet another outstading closing track ‘Slave To The Take In Your Heaven’.
As the twelve pieces go by you will find out that WSGM seem ambitious when it comes to overcome themselves and there is no doubt about their work in ‘Infinity Pool’ keeps up with its predecessor.
