nTTx – Objective (CD EP – WTII Records)
Background/Info: nTTx is a solo-project set up by Gord Clement who was previously involved in the promising Atomzero. Based in Toronto (Canada) nTTx already made a few noticeable remixes while the single “Falls Beautiful” released last year received instant success. Because of this success the title song has now been re-released on the “Objective”-EP featuring 3 extra songs and 3 remixes.
Content: “Falls Beautiful” is a solid piece of body-pop music, which also appears to be the main influence behind the other cuts. The composition is well-crafted and features a powerful production. The vocals are rather clear and charismatic. Gord Clement is definitely a good singer with a timbre of voice, which is totally appropriated for the sound.
The remixes have been made by Caustic, Stars Crusaders and Kiss Is Kill. I noticed a brilliant remix of “Falls Beautiful” by Stars Crusaders, which features terrific sound treatments.
+ + + : nTTx confirms the potential revealed on its single “Falls Beautiful”. This band composes a powerful body-pop style based upon a mature and detailed writing with great sound treatments. “cRave” is a noticeable song with a great progression in structure. The remixes add some extra power and other influences to the work.
– – – : “Objective” reveals multiple cool songs, but not a kind of hit from which you can’t escape.
Conclusion: nTTx confirms to be a real interesting ‘new’ body-pop formation and I’m really looking forward to discovering their debut full length. This is a band with huge potential.
Best songs: “cRave”, “Falls Beautiful”, “Falls Beautiful – Stars Crusaders Remix”.
