Nottingham's Mark Bagguley, Tom Walsh and Jamie Floodgate are three ordinary chaps who took four months to complete a debut album many established artists couldn't accomplish in ten. Documentary proves there need not be a brick wall dividing raw emotion and electronic music; perhaps this is why pinning these guys down to a single genre is next to impossible, unless an indie-electro-folk-chill-out section exists in some record stores. Whether they're dropping in an intense drum loop or hissing snare, a carefully tweaked flute sample or the vocal melodies that haunt each track, there's no question as to how well MIA combines multiple elements to produce music that's both precisely written and expressively delivered.
