This 7” is a two-parter with a long song spread over two sides. It’s smooth gliding synthpop with a big ‘80s-styled sound kind of like I’d imagine early Human League might have sounded if they had the benefits of modern day DIY production tools. Dense, swirling indie-dance type stuff with a bit of a house edge, reminding me a bit of LCD Soundsystem but with the bold bounciness of Eurodisco.
On the flip things get a bit more fun as they get on with some gleeful synth twiddling over a pumping neon beat, although the dance-rock thing does ring unfortunate bells with forgettable neo-baggy goons The Music by the end. Still, there’s plenty of ideas and they’re exuberantly put across so overall it scrapes a thumbs up from me.
