The Figurines, fronted by Christian Hjelm, are a Danish band that sounded
like Modest Mouse on
Shake the Mountain (2003), while
Skeleton (Control Group, 2006) swung between
angular Pixies-style rockers
and sprightly roots-rock, with the notable exception of the piano ballad Race You. They did display a knack for catchy refrains.
When The Deer Wore Blue (Control Group, 2007) retreated into the most
unoriginal form of Brit-pop. Past the emotional
Childhood Verse that opens the album, the band delivers trite melodies
over trivial arrangements. The notable exception is the
seven-minute Drunkard's Dream, that packs enough ideas to make the
album not completely worthless.
Figurines (2011) contains the single New Colors and little else,
reminiscent of the Hollies.
