Not a poor Relation


ELECTRONIC duo Relation sound like the prodigal spawn of an array of classic influences.
The Southend band's new album, Fear Of Night, sounds like the result of a coming together of Depeche Mode and New Order, with kinship with the likes of Pet Shop Boys, The Knife and many more audible.
But the duo of Andrew Leary and Oliver Keech are more than the sum of their parts, creating intelligent, throut provoking '80s style polished pop gems.
In fact, forget all your cheesy Lady Gagas and Little Bootsies, when it comes to reviving '80s electro pop, Relation are the daddy.
