Well, what to say about this album by The Indelicates
? I think, the most important thing to say is: Every band which has multiple vocalists tends to make people choose which one is better (there are exceptions, like Travis
, but they have only one vocalist and the others just sing sometimes). If a band has vocalists of different genders, it just multiplies the problem. Yes, it is hard to compare female to male singers but usually you simply cannot do so so there is no need to solve this difficulty.
It's different with The Indelicates
: They are proud to have both and imho it's not the best idea to have. The first half of the album, the two "Indelicates", Simon and Julia, take turns in singing. It reflects on the quality of the songs, as I will point out. It also makes them be sorted not by their melody or music but by the singer, which is a really stupid way to sort music by. In the second half, there are some songs they both sing.
