Re-emerging from the primordial soup of modern music, Moron Police return with “A Boat on the Sea” in the hopes of offering something different to those who would listen. This time they've eschewed their metal origins and focused on a progressive rock/pop sound, while still retaining their eclectic style of genre-bending music.
“A Boat on the Sea” is many things. Catchy and adventurous, but with an underlying current of Scandinavian melancholy—as perfectly captured by returning cover artist DULK. It has huge choruses, rampant guitar play, inventive synths, a plethora of time-signature changes—all the workings of an album of excess, yet it comes together to form a cohesive whole. Perhaps its most defining feature is that it sounds like Moron Police and no-one else, and no manner of superlative spluttering could really hope to capture its spirit. The best way to describe it would be to hear it.
The album is filled to the brim with catchy melodies and leitmotifs that will have you humming along until your ears start to bleed... in a good way.
