Operahouse change


THE Change In Nature EP, the latest blueprint from newcomers Operahouse, also signals a change in approach.
With previous releases such as Born A Boy, the group had a punky kind of feel, but here the group have set their sights on a sound as grand and epic as their name suggests.
Sadly their new dance-rock approach merely comes across as an attempt at The Verve, but with less, err, verve.
Not that I blame them for trying - If they could carry off the The Music-meets-Arcade Fire sound they're aiming at, this would be an indispensible EP ahead of their full-length debut.
But in execution Operahouse, on Change In Nature, are more 'am dram'.
