They're an odd package to open. Once an electronic band the group transposed into a full band sound and released their debut Dreams. This time they seem to be looking back into the pond and dipping their toes into their dancier beats.

The effect of a dance band learning their chops then going back to the freedom of dance music has a strange effect. It's almost Krautrock, almost early European dance music with drawn out sections that stray from the pop mold.

Current bands like Hot Chip and even Stereolab spring to mind especially with their use of vintage synthesizers.

There's still references to the solid pop songs you liked Dreams for but you’ll need to be prepared to wait in between choruses a bit longer. Oh and you'll need to change out of your grey shirt to something a little more festive.
