Zoot Woman are an electro-pop band starring none other than Stuart Price, who has produced for a variety of acts, including the Pet Shop Boys and Madonna. They've been around for thirteen odd years making very synth-y songs that hint at a musician who has definitely spent too much time with the Pet Shop Boys. 'Star Climbing' is their fourth record, the first since 2009's 'Things Are What They Used To Be', and continues to show off Zoot Woman's feel-good pop tricks supplemented with the vocals of Johnny Blake.

They are all laughing at me here but I really loved that first Zoot Woman album ‘Living in a Magazine’. Fantastic 80’s retro -pop back when it wasn’t cool to do such a thing. Metronomy before they were Metronomy if you will. However, as main practitioner Stuart Price became famous as a producer (Madonna, Pet Shop Boys no less) his old band seem to be just an after thought in his hectic star studded life. This fourth(!) album is a pleasant jog through the back roads of mid 80’s synth pop. Plenty of nods towards Depeche Mode, Erasure and the like but its so slickly done that you can imagine Price putting it together whilst checking his Twitter account. It will bring slithers of joy to the lives of 80’s fetishists and synth pop completists but its all a little slick and souless for these ears.
