‘December Sunset’ is a smoother and slicker song than we’ve heard from LexiconDon in the past and shows a maturing of their songwriting prowess. The guys have always seemed to write about everyday lives and loves rather than grand concepts and this track feels like the most genuine thing they’ve done to date. The music too, feels, somehow, more intimate and honest. Less distorted synths, more melody. SynthPop at it’s finest.
I’m sure the album will probably feature more of the raw, almost punky, Electro LexiconDon we are used to but if this is the way the band are evolving, the album could really be something special.
