Boomkat Product Review:
Addictive '90s dance-pop goodness from Equiknoxx's Shanique Marie and Manchester mainstay Finn. Sounding like Mantronix rewiring Saint Etienne or Lil Silva producing Joyce Simms it's exactly what we wanna hear right now...
If there's one thing we're missing this year in the flurry of quarantine albums and mandatory introspection it's jubilant, anthemic bangers. Thankfully, Finn has teamed up with Shanique Marie to emerge with some of the most addictive dance pop we've heard in ages. 'Lifey' starts things off with blissful piano 'n breakbeats that reminds fondly of Saint Etienne's classic dubbed-out cover of Neil Young's 'Only Love Can Break Your Heart'. But Shanique lifts things up even further, adding a memorable, airy vocal that'll be stuck in yer head for days.
'Movers' meanwhile is an icy electro shuffler, nodding to UK funky, 80s dance pop and classic soundsystem jams without ever losing its coherent flow. Even the cover is a slick rework of Sims' 'Come into my Life' 12", with too-cute baby pics of Finn and Shanique in-between snazzy text. We're obsessed basically.
