8/10 Brian Staff review, 20 March 2008
I initially balked when i heard the new Long Blondes single, 'Century'. It's an Erol Alkan production so he's definitely gone down the Blondie route with this one. I feel like I'm in an 80s disco grooving with those girls off the Mighty Boosh. I think the appeal is in it's effortless electro-disco pulse & sultry lyrics. It's definitely been inspired by Felix the Housecat & the Futurism mixes of a few years ago. There's some wonderful touches that make me wanna dig my Human League albums out but it's much more than a dreary update of the past. There's just tons of intriguing layers here, a real builder of a song! Starchasing dramatic vocals, swirling, icy keyboards & a timeless chugging beat. Oh, and Kate Jackson has such a classic voice, as horny as Alison Goldfrapp for sure ;0) So look out for this on yr radio or down at yr roller disco. It's no 'Giddy Stratospheres' but it will have you punching the air for sure! Ltd 7" only on Rough Trade
