Boomkat Product Review:
Striking début of pained indie vocals paired with lean wave grooves by Dormer, a duo comprising Australia’s Harry Maslen and Morgan Wright. Cop Envy and Leo James give sharper electro remixes.
Launched by Burning Rose x Pelvis Records, Dormir find their place with a fine grasp of pop romance for the ‘floor in their mix of louche vox with nervy electro-pop swing on In Pursuit, then with a quieter, low key sort of seduction in the reddit glow and languorous delivery of Rendezvous.
Both songs are further fired for the ‘floor on the B-side, Cop Envy giving a taut, recursive electro version of Cop Envy forgetting about the vocal and focussing on the rimshots with great effect, while Leo James follows an ace 12” on Berceuse Heroique to reinserts the vocals into a slick, rolling electro-pop chassis.
