Scanners - Love Is Symmetry

**2-FOR-1 WHEN YOU PURCHASE TWO DIFFERENT CDs**

CD version comes in card slipcase.

'Love Is Symmetry' is the third album from London quintet Scanners and their best yet, opening with the dark percussion of the title track, a song that lures you in with its whispered vocal before exploding wide open into a huge Vangelis-like chorus. Tracks such as ʻMexicoʼ and ʻCharmed Lifeʼ have an Arcade Fire quality, rising and falling with the energy of Sarah Dalyʼs vocals and violin. The violin also adds beauty and richness to the epic ʻState of Wonderʼ, a song about the river Lea that flows past their window in East London.

The Scanners trademark synth is also a strong presence on many of the tracks. On songs like the impossibly named ʻToday Is the Tomorrow That They Promised Yesterdayʼ and the squarely danceable ʻControlʼ, the synth takes the lead. The weird broken rhythm of ʻWhen They Put Me Back Together They Forgot to Turn Me Onʼ, and the strangely joyful Cure-like ʻMy Streets Are Always in the Shadeʼ see them broaden their range, providing two album highlights.

Recorded and produced by the band, with mixes by Victor Van Vugt (PJ Harvey, Athlete), the sound is still Scanners. Yet they have moved on. ʻLove Is Symmetryʼ seems more urgent, the rhythms more complex, but still the love of strong melody is there on every track.
