In Embrace: A Room Upstairs



Glass Records 1986.  GLASS 12051


I don’t have any recollection of how I came across this band.  I certainly never saw them play although they’re from Leicester which isn’t far from where I live.  I must have heard them on Peel.

This is slick, sophisticated synthpop with a distinctly English edge – not really what I usually go for, but I’m a sucker for a good song, which this is.

I had no idea they were so prolific until I looked this up on Discogs – strange that they remain so unknown to the extent that I couldn’t find a decent scan of the cover.  No info either – they seem to have disappeared without trace.
