I'm not sure if this band's name is taken from the Joy Division/New Order classic of the same name, but even if it isn't, Ceremony isn't exactly the most original band name in the world. Regardless, this is a really good 7". There's harshly distorted guitar and drum machine beats, New Order-ish hooks, and J&MC-ish vocals.
Actually, this sounds a lot closer to a few recent re-interpretations of the J&MC sound than J&MC proper. "Someday" sounds like the Magnetic Fields' "Distortion" album, but without the major label polish. Flipside "Cracked Sun" sounds like Blank Dogs but with more distortion, and a drum machine that could even be mistaken for actual drums. Or maybe it actually is a real drumset. Anyway, I dig this single a lot, can't wait for the album. 8/10 -- Paul Simpson (14 April, 2010)
