‘EP01, the début EP from this Australian five piece is crammed full with eight tracks. Four Originals and four reMixes, all blissed out funky ElectroPop with a Disco twist. The lead track, ‘It’s OK’, is pure summer anthem material. A slick Indie-Electro backing for some seriously lush Dreamwave synths with rousing vocals and building layers of sound giving the tune an eipc quality. Of remaining the original tracks our favourite is ‘In My Mind’, a laid back slice of Disco laden soulful ElectroPop with synth bass and piano working together to create a sunrise vibe. The signature of the original tracks are funky electronic and powerful, emotive vocals, which proved an excellent jump off point for the reMixes. Amongst which are Dublin Aunts deep ‘90’s House take on ‘It’s OK’, with it’s hammering House piano, which managers to inject a little Disco into it’s retro club sound and Mullet head honcho Casio Social Club’s ‘Heavy Disco Edit’, which does exactly what it says on the tin. expect big bouncy synth bass and wicked Disco licks.
