So, bearing that in mind, can someone please tell me the name of the track sampled in "I Know, I Hear"? Its position on the tip of my tongue is driving me to the point of distraction. The song itself is a sterling piece of work, allowing me to put the pique to one side for six-and-a-half minutes. Undoubtedly the highlight of the EP, it blends tight disco beats with catchy refrains, choral arrangements and, as already noted, well-chosen samples. Caroline Polachek of NYC hipster outfit, Chairlift, also helps bolster the ensemble with a round of sha-la-laa-ing that invites a good old sing-along.
Although robust enough, the other three tracks don't quite reach the same heights. They've each got their moments—the rhapsodic chorus in "Static on the Wire," the singing in a round of "Say My Name" and surly bass on "I Will Come Back" for example—but the melodies are somewhat interchangeable and perhaps spread a little too thinly over longer-than-they-should-be track durations. Bizarre reggaeton and wobbly-electro remixes by Drop The Lime and U-Tern respectively are slightly out of kilter with the established tone, but hey, it's all just a bit of good fun really.
