Seek Irony - Tech ‘N’ Roll album review

Texan/Israeli quintet fuse their instinctive passion for heavy rock with electronica on debut album

Tech, tech, tech, tech, tech and roll/Expand your mind and save your soul…’ Seek Irony may wear their heart on their sleeve on the title track of debut album Tech ‘N’ Roll, but this is no blind infatuation.

The Israeli/Texan quintet have taken some care in fusing their instinctive passion for heavy rock and electronica. So there’s a controlled energy about their style that leaves space for them to add some crucially distinctive guitar-driven elements.

Their breezy, clear-headed attitude lightens the intensity of tracks such as Skin 2 Skin (extolling the virtues of a one-night stand), and although that might not endear them to the hard-core it could appeal to a less austere audience and even bring them some airplay.
