New Music: Battery Operated Orchestra – Unbecoming

It’s been less than a week since I last featured Battery Operated Orchestra, but I’m enjoying their music enough I don’t mind sharing more of it. Their latest single features on Compulsory Games, the album of theirs I’ve just reviewed. In the context of the album, I enjoyed its delicate percussion and rich bass, but how does it hold up on its own?

By Graeme Smith

Taken as a single, Unbecoming provides a groovy synthpop wonder. The percussion and bass are still starring but charismatic vocals also hold their own, and its dreamy chorus is a catchy highlight. Battery Operated Orchestra truly know how to pen a memorable riff, and create a sound that is beautifully unique.

Battery Operated Orchestra are Brigitte Rose and Chris Black, two artists based on the South coast of England and originally from Tasmania, Australia, and Scotland.

You can give Unbecoming a listen below.

The track also has a music video which will premiere at 8pm today. You’ll be able to check it out here:
