Boomkat Product Review:
Kompakt's new darlings are the hotly-tipped duo Rainbow Arabia, a couple of seriously canny pop charmers with a killer debut album up their sleeve. In todays sea of instantly available music there's only a few who can fuse the most disparate sounds with anything approaching cohesion and these two are on the money. Their sound apparently originated from the purchase of a Lebanese Casio that played microtonal scales and eastern beats and lead to their fusion of post punk tropes with authentic Middle Eastern vibes on debut, the 'Basta' EP in 2008. Since then they've been encouraged by LA peers like Former Ghosts and assisted by the likes of drummer/producer Butchy Fuego (M.I.A/Boredoms) to develop a sound likened to everyone from Gang Gang Dance to an early incarnation of Madonna, a bold simulation of East and West as sharply rendered as it is surreally colorful. Danny Preston is responsible for the outernationally scoped rhythm programming and pads, while Tiffany Preston contributes sticky vocal hooks and cadences running a fine line between Karin Dreijer Andersson. M.I.A and the well warranted Madonna comparison. Entwine the two tightly, pressure bake in Caribbean sun and send into orbit on the African space programme and you should have something resembling this album. Fans of everyone from Animal Collective to Glasser, Telepathe to Toro Y Moi or Chris & Cosey need to spend some time with this. We don't think they'll regret it.
