“I Know You Know I’m Perfect” is a synth-pop style song from the Norwich based duo Mega Emotion. There are hints of the Human League and other similar bands running through this track. A pleasant, melodic piece it is the polar opposite of “Move Motherf*cker” which is the other track here. This release is based around the idea of 2 bands as one with the same musicians in both. Lisa Horton, Jan Robertson, and Iain Ross are the instrument swapping players.
The skill demonstrated here is that both bands (Mega Emotion and Lady Di) produce such radically differing styles. “Move Motherf*cker” is a driving piece of punk meets the Pixies which sits in stark contrast to the synth track. All band members were originally part of Norwich Indie outfit Bearsuit. The question is which genre they will opt to focus on or will they stick with this novel speciality of split styles. Whatever the result, it will be fascinating to watch as they are equally good at both.
