The System 1983



The System were a UK group who released just one album in 1983. Three tracks from that LP are featured on this 2016 reissue 12″, along with a previously unreleased song. Almost Grown kicks things off with a beat heavy vocal track which includes some ethereal chords reminiscent of Secret of Mana’s soundtrack. Pendry! You’re In Some Awful Danger is a dreamy ambient instrumental. The second vocal track Find It In Your Eyes is probably the strongest track here, featuring a smooth groove, some funky bass and wailing guitars alongside the yearning vocal. Vampirella rounds things off with pulsating synths and yet more ambience.

    Enjoyed those! Wonderfully overwrought title of the “Pendy!…” track is proper intriguing, wonder where it came from.

    Sounds like a modern day band covering the retro style, aged incredibly well. I enjoyed most of it, good find 👍
