“Somewhere between Kylie Minogue, Young Marble Giants and The xx”, lies the press release. It possibly, at a push, sounds a little like Kylie Minogue, nothing like the others. Yes everyone it’s festival season and Victoria and Jacob have managed to shoehorn the word ‘festival’ into this Italo house influenced frothy pop song in the vain attempt that it may become some ‘festival’ anthem.

You can almost hear the embarrassment in the singer’s voice as she sings it. It’s a slab of Europop with haunting ‘Captain of Your Heart’ sounding synth in the verses and a big pop chorus. It’s as light as a feather and makes Frazier Chorus sound like Megadeth. At best it resembles Club 8. On the flip, impressively, they cover ‘Under the Milky Way’ by The Church, a lovely song. The fact that they have ruined it, draining it of any of its original haunting brilliance is neither here nor there. I’m just happy that someone has been listening to it.
