Deepest Blue Signed Prints

Late September is the debut album from Matt Schwartz and Joel
Edwards although both have made names for themselves within the
music industry. The most notable notch on the duo's belts is
producer Matt's co-writing credits on Massive Attack's Dissolved
Girl, made famous with a little bit of help from Adidas and The
Matrix.

We're softly introduced to the pensive minds of Deepest Blue with
Be Still My Heart, a soothing Groove Armada-like song. It's the
type of track that will lead you into a deep sleep. Can't Believe
is more like the Deepest Blue that we know from their singles
with a typical build-up to a heavy chorus. The lyrics aren't
inspired but Joel Edward's sharp vocals lead straight into their
latest single Is It A Sin.

Late September slowly but surely veers you into a world of radio
friendly summery music, which isn't surprising given that the
group's mission statement is "to make fun, uplifting
tracks...contemporary pop". This is all encapsulated in Give It
Away, which we all know, and however much you want to deny, like.

That's the challenge facing marketable acts who are seeking
credibility; they have got to produce something appealing to the
masses, which demand non-invasive music. This is the vibe that
emanates from Shooting Star (n.b. not a trace of Happy Hardcore
here). Joel's gruff voice blends perfectly with the backing of a
strings arrangement, no doubt inspired by Matt Schwartz and his
skills as a classical violinist.

The album's title track is also the clear stand out. With an
almost angelic opening juxtaposed with a hint of scratching and a
dominant acoustic guitar, the peaceful feeling disguises the
meaning behind Late September. It's a cry to an ex, and imagined
or real, there's a distinct image of low-key emotion mixed with
autumnal feeling and the dawn of the inevitable cold winter.

Deepest Blue brings back the memories of Summer 2003 when this
song charted at a highly respectable number seven. The duo's
first track is the clearest reason why they're signed to Ministry
of Sound albeit in the subdivision that is Open, with its dance-
orientated pop. It's a stark contrast to Say Goodbye and the
acoustic bias that is errs to. This has very little in common
with Spread A Little Love except for the consistent and
continuous vocals. It's a slow but pounding way to end Late
September.

Deepest Blue can only be labelled under the umbrella of pop but
that hides the versatility displayed on Late September. It isn't
an earth-shattering album, but that's not what you'd expect from
them, Late September is perfect for something just to chill to.
