If you’re a fan of Empire of the Sun, Mansions on the Moon or Unknown Mortal Orchestra, imagine combining the three and you’re pretty close to the sound of this very track.

Dreamscape synths, retro-inspired melodies and guitar work, and strong electronic percussion combines for an alternative pop production that’s part laidback, part groin-meltingly funky. The vocals match up that backdrop, with ethereal, high-pitched yet gentle verses that definitely have an Empire of the Sun feel, before the band cut loose in the hook with a more grounded vocal style that makes the most of the production’s upswing in that section. A cracking slice of alternative pop from STRFKR (of course, pronounced star f**ker), be sure to grab that Miracle Mile album on 19th February (pre-orders available).
