The Chevin - Borderland (2012) [FLAC] Released: 2012 Duration: 41:46 Genre: Pop/Rock Styles: Post-Punk, Alternative Codec: FLAC Bit Rate: ~ 900 kbps Bits Per Sample: 16 Sample Rate: 44,100 Hz Cover: Front 01 Champion 02 Drive 03 Blue Eyes 04 Dirty Little Secret 05 Love Is Just A Game 06 Borderland 07 Beautiful World 08 Gospel 09 Colours 10 So Long Summer Taking their name from the ridge that overlooks their home borough of Otley, West Yorkshire, English alt-rockers the Chevin's propulsive, radio-ready blend of U2, Coldplay, The Guillemots, and The Bends-era Radiohead isn't nearly as rustic as their naturalistic moniker would suggest. Bolstered by a Wembley arena-sized single ("Champion") that dominated television and commercial pop radio in the months before their full-length debut's release, the ten-track Borderland doles out pop hooks like a carnival barker. Glistening, smartly produced, and relentlessly enthusiastic, it's a shame that the songs themselves are all so rote, bloated with lyrical clichés and ubiquitous, soaring choruses that are better left in the more capable hands of groups like The Killers or Muse. That said, tracks like "Drive," "Blue Eyes," and the appropriately epic title cut are as immediate and shiny as they are vacant, and lead vocalist/songwriter Coyle Girelli's Bellamy/Yorke/Bono croon is so unapologetically sincere that it's hard not to get swept up in all of the melodrama, for at least a minute or two.
