WHAT’S THE STORY?: After assessing their first release, it’s evident that Sulu Babylon are a musical anomaly, which certainly isn’t a bad thing.

‘Ghost In A Room’ is terrific from an instrumental perspective, and while the lyrics may not be as sophisticated enough for many people’s tastes, it’s almost irrelevant, as the track is blatantly configured to be nothing more than a visceral slice of intense rock.

With ‘Moonlight’, the band experiment with electronica elements, but they have an insubstantial impact on the song and appear gratuitously supplemental.

While Sulu Babylon’s ideas sometimes fail to translate effectively on this E.P, the final two tracks demonstrate their true potential.

‘Bitter’ fuses 80s rock attitude with an accessible dance groove, leaving the listener with an offering that sounds like InnerPartySystem if they watched Wayne’s World religiously.

On the other hand, ‘I’m A Man, Not A Machine’ harnesses the band’s sound with pop sensibilities, featuring a rousing chorus that potentially points to a fruitful new musical direction.

Sulu Babylon’s breed of music may require refinement in order to make an impact in the British scene, but they certainly aren’t short of ideas.

SOUNDS LIKE: InnerPartySystem, Incubus.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: You appreciate bands who are willing to experiment and take chances with their output.
