This single has one of the best sleeve images I’ve ever seen. The duo chill in matching green Adidas tracksuits in a room full of amazing, cryptic and often inexplicable details - there’s a giant porcelain puma on the floor, rollerskates, a magazine and poster with the band’s name on, a giant bronze palm tree...a half-peeled banana sits on the coffee table while a giant sports trophy is propped next to an even more giant pair of Wem speakers, plus crazy paint job on the wall is a sight to behold. Yup, it’s the best record sleeve since Bikes’ self-titled LP if you ask me.
That’s all well and good, but the music has to not suck as well, right? Well you don’t need to worry, this pair are crafting some brilliantly soulful and modern-sounding soul/r’n’b styles with some left-of-centre bedroom production touches and silky vocal harmonies. It’s hard not to compare them with TV on the Radio, but this is a poppier (yet still woozy) sound, almost like Dean Blunt experimenting with some pure pop ideas maybe. I’m particularly liking the laid back B side ‘Lucky I Got What I Want’, which combines sad soft synths, hushed precision vocal harmonies and fingersnaps. Best pop single I’ve heard in ages.

Great record and amazing customer service!
Paypal was having some technical issues so I contacted Norman Records and they sorted it all out immediately. Response time to my email was quicker than some other online shops. In the end I was able to make a paypal payment to Norman Records for my order.
Received the record very fast and have been rinsing the title track "The Heat" non stop ever since.
