Polaroid Fame “We Live Your Life”

October 18, 2009

This sounds like an ’80s cover band where you don’t know any of the songs they are covering. Or if you had been listening to the ’80s Underground on KSCU, and you recognize all the rhythms, but none of the songs ring a bell.
This band is likely a lot of fun live. They have no shame about the music they create. You don’t act embarrassed when you name your band “Polaroid Fame,” two words that individually define the 1980s. I suppose “Atari Porky’s” was already taken.
“Wanna Know” sounds like Wang Chung. And I bet lead singer Frankie Kimpton is always telling people to relax. “When I’m With You” has the hand claps you’ve been looking for.
“Caught on Film” sounds a little too much like Duran Duran, who did “Girls on Film,” of course. You have to draw the line somewhere. This was a little too blatant to me.
But otherwise, it all works pretty well. I mean, God knows we don’t have enough real 1980s CDs in the $1.99 bin at Rasputin, so we might as well pay $10 for a new one, right?
