EP Review L’Objectif - We Aren’t Getting Out But Tonight We Might

It’s hard not to slip under that disconcerting L’Objectif spell.

L’Objectif - We Aren’t Getting Out But Tonight We Might

It’s simply not enough for L’Objectif to be in the middle of their A-Level exams. Why not add to the mountain of pressure and release a new EP? Enter ‘We Aren’t Getting Out But Tonight We Might’, a five-track rendezvous through the lengths of the outfit’s ambition. Sparking into being with a healthy dose of futuristic synth before relinquishing the reins to frontman Saul Kane, ‘Same Thing’ is their rosiest offering yet, but don’t let the amount of groove fool you. When they’re lingering on the existential, the band come into their own. They might try and expel some of that tense energy through more upbeat moments, but it edges into their sound nevertheless. ‘Feeling Down’ sonically makes the effort to leave you feeling lighter, but those spiralling emotions still rear their head. It’s moody and thrumming with exasperation but in such a way you’re almost left waiting for an explosion. Instead, they deliver sheer disorientation. ‘To Be Honest’ ups the tempo and bursts with freneticism but as the closing track ‘Thought It Was Real’ returns to that familiar frustration, it’s hard not to slip under that disconcerting L’Objectif spell.
