Po-mo pop vagabond Max Tundra has ensured these two 15-minute cartoon pop stars will play out a small second act in the year 2015. Daphne & Celeste responded to Max’s twitter cooing to record this new single - a weirdly understated synth-heavy, Tundra-esque production. Conceptually seductive/daft 7” from Balatonic.

6/10 Clinton Staff review, 15 April 2015
This is a high concept, low art 7" in which producer Ben Jacobs (aka Max Tundra) produces a 'comeback' single for turn of the millennium pop duo Daphne and Celeste. That's the backstory but not much else about this is as memorable. What we have is acceptable second division pop that is probably way superior than the stuff Daphne and Celeste peddled back in the day but when lined up against real experimental pop practitioners it pales towards insignificance. Its minimal pop approach is the only thing that sets it apart, there's plenty of space but the beats are limpid and the melodies wane long before the end. An interesting curio more than anything else.
