Hopefully someone will beep you or flash at you if your lights are off. I do the exact opposite, I keep leaving my headlights on during the day. I’m obviously pretending I’m a Volvo.
The press release is coy about who is involved in this but I strongly suspect that it’s something to do with The Manhattan Love Suicides. That particular ensemble’s creations are popular with you record-buying folks and I think this will be too. The A side is a big booming electronic tune with echoes of the ‘60s greats the group obviously are inspired by but also, more keenly, early ‘80s electro-pop, it sounds remarkably like Yazoo collaborating with Jesus and Mary Chain.
The B side ‘(I’m A) Willing Receiver’ (yup, that’s me...and giver too) is completely different, yet rooted in the early days of the popularisation of electronic music - one part The Normal, one part The Flying Lizards. The chorus has a nice falling effect on the vocals, I’m not sure how they’ve done it but it contrasts nicely with the icy isolationism of the verses. Very good.
