"As the acoustic and spare sound of Dimmer began to evaporate, the electric shine of the group's dormant influences began to come through, from the Postcard and Rough Trade bands of 1980s Britain to the minimal, organ-driven drones of 1960s New York. All of this contributed to the album you see before you, Black Pompadour. The Zincs have succeeded in marrying their classic song-forms with a brighter electric sound to make a vital album for the times. What makes them such a singular band is how they weave such dark prose into their beautiful melodies, a reward that the casual listener could miss on first hearing."
