Sometimes it all just comes together. In this case, the interplay of outstanding vocals, dark lyrics complementing bright twinkling synths, glossy production and all make this a fantastic synthpop song worthy of ’90s-era Depeche Mode. Other ’90s synthpop bands that this reminds me of include Echoing Green, Brave New World, and Neuropa. In particular, the chorus (which appears about 2 minutes in) just soars you into the stratosphere. My review can’t possibly do justice to this excellent song by this band from Manchester, UK. To quote a ’90s movie: “They should’ve sent a poet.”
