Satisfactory, Based on 2 Critics

New Musical Express (NME) - 60

You don’t tend to think of post-dubstep as having also-rans. But just as Britpop needed Menswear and the new rock revolution needed Jet, so Mount Kimbie et al need London-via-Oxford’s Stubborn Heart. This is a chilling record, as melancholic vocals split awkwardly over oddly syncopated drum sounds. At times, like on the perfectly understated ‘To Catch A Spark’, it can take your breath away.

In spring of 2011, a curious white-label 12" started popping up in London record shops. The two very well-crafted synth-pop tunes on it belonged to a duo called Stubborn Heart-- one of the only details to be hand-stamped on the vinyl's clean, white inner label. "Need Someone" was the record's excellent A-side, clocking in at six minutes and not wasting a single second.
