It's virtually impossible to take SHE WANTS REVENGE seriously as an artistic enterprise. As a JOY DIVISION or DEPECHE MODE covers band? Absolutely. Either one. They've got the drone, the faux Brit accents, the general sense of doom 'n' gloom. But what they don't have is a single ounce or iota of originality.
Maybe, just maybe, that's their schtick. Maybe the whole act's meant to be an ironic, too-cool-for-school carnivale of karaoke-styled post-modernism. Maybe low-art is the new high-art.
Or maybe they're just lazy, talentless hacks who make INTERPOL sound cutting-edge by comparison.
