Sink­ing Into A Mir­a­cle 9/10

UNCUT - - New Albums - Cale­do­nian col­lec­tive’s her­metic disco dream­ing JON DALE

It shouldn’t re­ally work – an ex­per­i­men­tal artist/film­maker, an avant-folk poly­math, a free­jazz dou­ble bassist and Franz Fer­di­nand’s drum­mer – but ever since their first sin­gle, 2017’s “Par­adise”, Glas­gow’s amor have made strangely per­fect sense. It’s partly down to what they do – ex­plor­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ties of disco, they carry on where fig­ures like arthur Rus­sell and The Peech Boys left off, their fix­a­tion on the pos­si­bil­i­ties of trance and rep­e­ti­tion dove­tail­ing with the psalmic weave cre­ated by Richard youngs’ mul­ti­tracked vo­cals. Sink­ing Into A Mir­a­cle is ab­so­lutely beau­ti­ful – oth­er­worldly, often, and qui­etly ec­static, in its own, strangely pop way.
