REVL9N - WALKING MACHINE

“She said 'I like it better when it hurts'”

From only one look at Revl9n's promo picture I knew I would love them. Despite occupying the all-but-dead electroclash genre, Revl9n bring fantastic pop smarts and a whole lot of attitude, which sets them easily apart from their peers. Walking Machine is an absolutely addictive confection. I've had it on repeat for awhile now and I like it better with each listen. Couple an extremely catchy melody with a computer blip landscape that kind of sounds like Deep Forest on crack and you've got a major hit. If you like electropop groups like The Knife and Mylo (but with much more of a pop melody), I would especially recommend this group.

But how do we pronounce their name?

Rev-l-nine-n?

Reveleen, like Maybelline?

I'm assuming Revlon, with the 9 more for show than anything. The reason I'm thinking this is because in some of their press, the "tail" of the 9 kinda hangs off the bottom, making it look more like an exaggerated "o".

But, I have yet to find anything conclusive. It is rather irritating, isn't it? But, the song makes up for it I think.

Revlon or Maybelline?

At least it's not "Rim-all London" with Kate Moss slathering it all over her face.

"Revlon 9" is their correct name,
just as they used to be called before this arty spelling on the
cover:)
