Album Review B.E.D - B.E.D

B.E.D - B.E.D

In this case, three in a B.E.D fits just fine.

Rating:

One’s an amusingly sardonic musical anti-hero, one’s a French house DJ and the other’s a member of a feminist punk band. It’s an unholy trinity that has no right to work, but the trio’s wildly diverse starting points combine to an unexpectedly cohesive whole. “We’re just obvious: listening to Florence and the Machine and having a roll-up,” mutters Baxter Dury on ‘Only My Honesty Matters’. 

Etienne De Crecy is there to underwrite the sentiments with sad, pillowy synths; Delilah Holliday pitches in occasionally, ensuring proceedings don’t go too far into crotchety old man territory. Across the record, all prop each other up to create something that’s more than the sum of their parts. In this case, three in a B.E.D fits just fine.
