Aussie cinematic soul fiends Surprise Chef present another musical hors d’oeuvre before serving up the main course of their first LP on Big Crown, Education & Recreation in the form of new single Iconoclasts. A subdued affair, it almost evokes certain types of traditional Japanese music both in the arrangement and, at times, even the instrumentation. The sort of thing you’d have no trouble imagining as incidental music on a night-time scene on a manga movie. Which I can’t imagine will garner any complaints.
