Boomkat Product Review:
Hercules and Love Affair side-project Jessica 6 finally turn in their debut album, and appearing on the Peacefrog imprint you should know it’s gonna be pretty good. The melancholy of their ‘mother’ band is all but gone, and Nomi Ruz, Andrew Raposo and Morgan Wiley construct an endearing blend of popular dance tropes and Pitchfork-friendly indie. At times you might hear a snatch of dancehall, a hint at classic electro, a nudge towards deep house – but these are pop songs first and foremost, using the bands wide-ranging influences as garnish rather than the main ingredient. Fans of Gang Gang Dance should certainly take a closer look.
