Spektrum – Enter The Spektrum

Offbeat debut by London-based quartet

Trending Now

Trailing yourself as an evolutionary shift in dance music is asking for trouble. But the debut LP from electro-funkers Spektrum is a seductive oddity, blending post-punk and electronica elements with heavily treated disco-pop. Purring multiple, overlapping vocals, Lola Olafisoye sounds like Macy Gray dancing the Charleston to Squarepusher, although the mannered delivery and samey pace pall as Spektrum stray into Moloko or Morcheeba territory. Pleasant, but hardly evolutionary.
