HER­CULES AND LOVE AF­FAIR – OMNION

DNA Magazine - - MUSIC REVIEWS -

On al­bum #4 this Amer­i­can/ Euro­pean col­lec­tive again cun­ningly brew a hy­brid of fu­tur­is­tic cool retro-elec­tro. Lead sin­gle Con­troller, fea­tur­ing Faris Bad­wan of English rock­ers The Hor­rors, might just be the best dance­floor filler Depeche Mode never re­leased. Faris also con­trib­utes vo­cals on Through Your At­mos­phere, a pen­sive electropop trance an­them for a new age. An­other high­light, Wild­child, fea­tur­ing big voiced Rouge Mary, is ready­made to “lip­sync for your life” to, while the throb­bing My Curse And Cure is queer heart­break to a disco beat. Omnion sug­gests Andy But­ler and co are keen to of­fer more than just trend­set­ting dance, with a num­ber of de­cid­edly down­beat tracks, yet they re­main one of the most ex­cit­ing bands in the evolv­ing club­bing uni­verse.
