Ideals – Altar

Released March 26th 2012 on Intruder Records
From the Suffolk originating, now London based four piece Ideals, Altar, is an example of full melancholic indie, the opening chord sequence being very much of the Interpol-esque genre, the slightly scathing yet soft vocals of Andrew Major hooking onto and into the chugging guitar melodies and deadening wash of atmosphere. Not quite in the league of Significant Other, this is still a solid piece of songwriting, and as long as EP Let Your Anger Leave You contains some examples of excitement as well stalwart indie, this band could be going places.
