‘I Love You, It’s Cool’ (Dead Oceans)
Have we not had enough of these serene synths, chill wave vocals and anonymous looking men stood rigidly behind keyboards? No, apparently, we have not, as BIH’s icily reinvigorating pop resounds gloriously from ‘I Love You, It’s Cool’, pouring like a bucket of water onto their peers’ floppy-fringed heads. The New Yorkers’ follow-up to 2010’s ‘Beast Rest Forth Mouth’ is a web of space-age synths and droid like mantras, ‘Sinful Nature’ and ‘The Reflection Of You’ sounding somewhere in-between a laser-filled alien battle and a minty-fresh mouthwash advert. Refreshingly repetitive. We love you too, Bear In Heaven.
