Repeat & Follow
Round And Round
Hot off the back of a daring covers album [‘Kloned’] and a club-hit single [‘Repeat & Follow’], London’s electro-industrial veterans Inertia are back with ‘Deworlded’, their first full-length album since 2007’s ‘Inertia’. Eighteen years and multiple line-up changes have re-shuffled Inertia into a veritable electronic-super-group comprising members from Killing Joke, Electro-Falco, Killer B Movie and Swarf, all of who show off their prowess on this latest offering.
‘Deworlded’ is conceptually strong and musically well-executed album. From the opening bars of the first track, the album takes you on a journey, compelling you to step outside of yourself and take a look at your life. It isn’t a preachy album though. Instead the band’s musical pedigree has allowed them to utilise their skills to create a collection of club-friendly songs with a lot more going on below the surface.
There are plenty of stand-out hits to ensnare fans of all electro sub-genres. ‘Deworld’, the album’s opener, is a slinky groove-laden affair that recalls the classic EBM sound of the ’90s. ‘Feed’ on the other hand, is an up-tempo electro-rock track with a solid, driving beat. The album’s lead single, ‘Repeat & Follow’, is a fantastic slice of modern electro-industrial that is both hard and infectious with a sing-a-long chorus for good measure. Whereas ‘Gone’ is a high energy synthpop number with a strong electronic-percussion lead and memorable melody.
