Just as any great artist can
reveal their minds eye to the listener in a three minute song,
Innerpartysystem somehow finds a way to do more – they take your hand, place
something important inside it, walk you through the seedy and desolate
alleys of their home-town and then they hold the door for you as you gape
the dark and familiar. But don't be afraid, it's just entertainment.
Part confessional. Part dance
party. -- it's never quiet clear what Innerpartysystem offers their
listeners. The keen observer will allow themselves to be dawn in by the
anxious beats, pensive blips and ominous thrashing tones while lyrically the
band entangles you in sordid narratives with themes of lust, drugs, heresy,
honesty, love and the insatiable pursuits of the darkest night life.
Sometimes the result is numbing and ominous, sometimes it's nervous and
twisted, sometimes mindless and danceable, however, Innepartysystem are
always subtlety challenging.
