The Narcoleptic Dancers - Not Evident EP
The Narcoleptic Dancers, named after the nickname the sports press gave their footballing father Johnny Van Kappers, are as odd as the freaky haircuts on the cover of this EP suggest. The unfettered quirkiness of the songs on show here display an assured touch rare in a debut release. The happy clappy bounciness of title track ‘Not Evident’ and ‘Unique Tree’ are reminiscent of the Fiery Furnaces at their best, while ‘Again & Again’ is a dreamy journey worthy of any of the current crop of folk wannabees. The electro-pop rhythms of ‘Rastakraut’ close out the EP in typically upbeat and enjoyable style. Let’s hope The Narcoleptic Dancers can replicate the sheer fun and freshness of this EP when they release their first full length album next year.
