Boomkat Product Review:
New York ‘nu disco’ survivalists head back to JD Twitch’s ever-open minded Optimo Music for this latest album.
‘Self-imposed pariahs’ Penelope Trappes and Stephen Hindman go conceptual on ‘Still // Alone,’ an album of two distinct halves recorded after they ditched New York for London.
The first half sticks stridently to the clubby interplay between Trappes’ vocals and 4/4 drum machine rhythms, foreboding synths and arpeggios. Fans of Dan Avery’s debut LP, Factory Floor’s DFA output and even the recent bone rattlers from DVA DAMAS on DNS will find some delight here.
The frazzled, discombobulated syntherlude // signals their intent to veer off in an arguably more interesting direction, embellishing their obvious love of synth pop with a darker hue.
Questions bears comparisons with Portishead without sounding like triphoppy syncbait, There Is No Love Between Us is the most glaring call-back to their nu disco past, before the pair end on the buffed-up Chris & Cosey stylings of Rivers.
