One might be forgiven for thinking that the introduction to “We Are Young” might lead into an airy drum ‘n’ bass of the LTJ Bukem variety. However, a sedate synthy track of the eighties vibe awaits with a welcome electric guitar solo.
The EP includes a number of remixes including the Popopopops Remix which starts with a promising flutter of Tetris-style harmonics and angelic backing vocals. The Sferro remix has a lot more movement and the Yan Wagner offering opts for an obvious New Order – Blue Monday – influence.
