On the Purevolume page of Fearless Records' most recent acquisition Let's Get It, they describe themselves as 'pop/rock/club' (Millionaires brother band?). To make matters worse, their MySpace page has the layout – which includes a wonderful Jeffree Star tour poster, and prolonged load time to correspond with the stereotype. So before you hit play, you're expecting looping synths, with excessive vocal effects and idiotic lyrics, right? Wrong.

The pace for Let's Get It's debut release, 'Digital Spaces', is set with the impressive opener 'Duck, Duck, Grey Goose'. The vocals are first to make an impact – a mirror of exclamation mark-era Brendon Urie. Actually, the similarities with Panic! At The Disco continue;

"You've got nerves, that's okay babe, Well I've got time, I'll give you all day"

These seductive, confident lyrics in the opening verse soon culminate with the powerful chorus, conducted by the vocalist Joe Gilford's prominent voice, effective guitar work and twinkling background synths. "Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off," part two.

The self bestowed 'club' tag is slightly justified however; particularly with the memorable second track 'Do Not Disturb (Tell Me How Bad)' and 'Maps' – which both utilize elements of electonica, aiming for a glossy effect, which while adding depth, can also at times sound tiresome and surplus to requirements – this band is talented enough not to need to use such effects.

It would be fair to say that Digital Spaces is half techno-pop, and half rock. Songs such as "Ciroc & Roll" and "Shoot For Teams" further flaunt their potential ability to conform with the 'emo rock' scene, and further provoke similarities with a certain band. The EP closes in bizarre fashion with "To Catch A Snipe" – a theatrical, piano driven song, which concludes the EP in a steady, decelerating manner.

Delivering an infusion of techno pop/rock with their debut EP, Let's Get It have asserted themselves as capable musicians and have dismissed preconceptions surrounding their image. However, while trying to incorporate a wide range of styles and sounds, focus wilts at times; a more concise, singular sound would suit better. Let's Get It have got something. Let's see if they use it, and get somewhere.

1. Duck, Duck, Grey Goose
2. Do Not Disturb (Tell Me How Bad)
3. Shoot For Teams
4. Maps
5. Ciroc & Roll
6. To Catch A Snipe

We live in a fast-paced world where quality is traded for quantity, technology has taken over and the way music is created and consumed has evolved. As some bands scramble to keep up, Let’s Get It is tearing to the front of the pack, embracing change, and giving their fast-growing army of fans that giddy feeling of discovering something exciting and fresh.
