Blind Faith and Envy
The Charming Factor
Blind Faith and Envy is an impressive synth pop band that is made up of Charlene April and Daniel
"Crowded Room" is a Depeche Mode-ish pop tune with a deft hook and a great vocal by April. "Major
Philosopher" is a very dancefloor friendly track with a pulsating beat. "Slightest Wave" is shiny
and energetic like Erasure could be. April's a less showy singer than Andy Bell though. "When I
know you're gone" flirts with electroclash and is sassy and smart. The cover of Depeche Mode's
"Shout" is neat also.
Some remixes round off the record in a very nice way. In all this is a very pleasant listen.
