After a decade of turning out club-ready and disco tinged house singles, Leeds pair PBR Streetgang suitably up their game for a debut full length. The longer format allows members Bonar Bradberry and Tom Thorpe to stretch their legs into proper songs like ‘Human Being’ featuring upcoming vocalist Lily Juniper, which is a delicate opener that sets a sensitive mood. From there things slowly pick up with the gently cosmic keys and careful bass of ‘I Left My Hear’ and raw, slow motion house offering ‘Transfunction.’
Elsewhere, standout tracks like ‘Ferric’ featuring Danielle Moore (of Crazy P fame) are the sort of timeless nu-disco cuts this pair do so well, while ‘Pork Chop Express’ is a loop-house jam that will rally any dance floor into action. Every track boasts well played chords, smart arrangements and exactly the right amount of twinkle and shine to elevate them above the average.
