Moderat – Reminder EP REVIEW

German electronic act Moderat managed to overcome the ever fatal second album syndrome that infects any band who release a critically acclaimed debut, a triumph in itself. However, when your track record now features two well received LPs, how on earth do you pull it off again?

In Moderat’s case they’ve done more of the same and who can really blame them: they perfect their own dance-floor sound on II so why fix what isn’t broken.Already drawing comparisons to Radiohead for its vocal delivery that echoes Thom Yorke very heavily, there’s the undeniably catchy techno hook that you’re just as likely to hear at an underground rave as you are on Match Of The Day.


Admittedly, my relationship with Moderat is limited to only their second LP which caught me off guard in 2013 when I first started reviewing music. With 3 years of experience under my belt, it seems like the act haven’t evolved, rather they’ve just tweaked a few elements and kept that slick production value that will be an easy draw in for any new listeners.
