Third long-player from playful Franco-house pioneer
Sinclar’s international playboy schtick used to overshadow the music. Not here. It may be frothier and camper than ever, but Sinclar?aka Christophe Le Friant?has a new-found focus and vitality. “Kiss My Eyes” updates gay NY disco, while “Nature Boy” mashes Euro-pop pomp with sideways glances at FM rock. Whereas so much electroclash lacks melodic thrills, there’s an abundance of crisp, pulsating tunes here. And despite the disco flashbacks, Le Friant favours twisted re-interpretations over dead-handed pastiches. Fans of Daft Punk’s Discovery will love it.
