Aeroplane owns this release, and not just because he opts to get rid of the vocal tinsel. In his hands, the women's lead vocals are stretched slightly, bringing out a hyper-English drawl that, along with the clean-and-spangly synths, puts the track comfortably near Pet Shop Boys terrain (who said all '80s synth-pop was alike?). When Oakey comes back in over a confident guitar-synth thump (with "woo! woo!" electro-tom accents, no less) that snuggles up to prime New Order, it's the definition of smart people doing big, dumb fun up right.
