Part confessional. Part dance party. It's never quite clear what Innerpartysystem offers their listeners. The keen observer will allow themselves to be drawn in by the anxious beats, pensive blips and ominous thrashing tones while, lyrically, the band entangles you in sordid narratives with themes of lust, drugs, heresy, honesty, love and the insatiable pursuits of the darkest night life. Sometimes the result is numbing and ominous, sometimes it's nervous and twisted, sometimes mindless and danceable, however, Innerpartysystem are always subtly challenging.
Just as any great artist can reveal their mind's eye to the listener in a 3-minute song, Innerpartysystem somehow finds a way to do more. They take your hand, place something important inside it, walk you through the seedy and desolate alleys of their hometown and then they hold the door for you as you gape into the dark and unfamiliar. But don't be afraid, it's just entertainment.
