Reimagined 80’s pop never sounded so vital
Tusk Vegas is a monster. It is three and a half minutes of exquisite indie pop. Sounding somewhere between the disco beats and spazzy angular guitars or Franz Ferdinand, the vocal delivery of Kasabian and retro vibe of Lobster Club, Movie can strut comfortable on any dance floor, and high-street for that, across the country.
What’s more the rest of the EP is just as infectious. In a Life brings to mind the Cure at their hauntingly poppy best. In Vain is another indie disco stomper. Misty Windowpane sounds like the Thompson Twin, but instead of synths and keyboards, they had more guitars.
The Tusk Vegas EP is released today and I can’t think of a better way to kick of a new week than buy this and playing it on loop, like a demented mantra until next Monday rears it’s ugly head! This is essential listening!
