STATISTICS [I]OFTEN LIE[/I] REVIEW
Honestly it is a pure joy to listen to Statistics´ latest record. “Often Lie” is their second full length on Jade Tree records. The label is pretty known for bands like Pedro The Lion, The Loved Ones or Paint It Black I am totally amazed by the bands latest release, which I would describe as solid Indie or Emo-Rock release. The songs convince the listener with nice and emotional rock songs, which make it simple to dream to. The record shows a strong similarity to bands like Jimmy Eat World or Solea. In general I would say, that “Often Lie” is a pretty mature and romantic record with warm and cosy vocals combined with drum computers and synthesisers. Yeah, I feel like back in 1998, when the word Emo was born. Statistics definitely belong into this genre. Their latest record contains 8 songs plus one instrumental song, which deal with pretty normal themes like Love. The soft and careful drum- and guitar work, as well as the silent parts which are only underlined by electric guitars or synthesizer, make this record so special and pleasant.
