Better Sit Down Boy/Boyfriend – Confidence Man

January 13, 2018
fromthelisteningnook

Format: 7″ Black Vinyl

Side A: BETTER SIT DOWN BOY – scintillating old skool electronic drum pattern, oozing loops and samples, building a high-energy party vibe. A punchy, cheeky and fun cavalcade of happiness and joy. Like the Avalanches on speed. A true stomper of a track, featuring astonishing production values. Would fit just about any advert ever!

Side B: BOYFRIEND – bleeding-edge production serves up a banging digital party. Manic up-beat storytelling fused with a 60s aesthetic and layered synth genius. A hypnotic rhythm counterpoints the deadpan vocals. Electronics + humour + party = perfection!

Score: 10/10

Vinyl Thought: stomp the night away with digital party perfection

Bonnie/Love – Anteros

January 5, 2018
fromthelisteningnook

Format: 7″ Yellow/Orange Vinyl

Side A: BONNIE – The amazing Anteros are back with another slice of modern lively pop exuberance, over-flowing with Blondie-esque vocals and bouncy, upbeat fun! A super-sized helping of personality flows through this corker of a track backed by vibrant guitars and a hint of bubble-gum pop.

Side B: LOVE – a dreamy, bittersweet pop ballad infused with a gorgeous 80s feel and just the right amount of Jane Wiedlin vocal styling. A driving rhythm melds beautifully with a delicious main course of storytelling.

Score: 9/10

Vinyl Thought: 2018 won’t officially start until the debut Anteros album is released!
