Limited edition of 500. White vinyl.
Oh, how we missed eighties synth-pop! And those vocoders that make robotic voices! Those futuristic melodies! We are celebrating the release of the Galician duo MILKNAUT’s first single, which we’re releasing as part of the New Adventures in Pop collection, and which will be a delicacy for fans of NEW ORDER, KRAFTWERK, RHEINGOLD, DAF, GIORGIO MORODER, TELEX, OMD and EL AVIADOR DRO Y SUS OBREROS ESPECIALIZADOS. The group formed in Vigo in 2008, from the ashes of a previous project called MURMURA, and consists of Iago Reigosa (bass, guitar and synthesizers) and Bruno Murmura (song writing, arrangements, voice and synthesizers), both of whom are conservatory music professors (take that!) who transform into galactic robots at night and, under that facet, got in touch with Elefant Records in 2010.
Thanks to that moment, this white, limited-edition single, “Gumboot Girls”, is here, which has four incredibly addictive and fantastic songs. The title track is the most surprising within the style, because of that guitar that starts the song off and which quickly turns into a melody that evokes the delicate blips of LALI PUNA. In any case, we have a glorious song before us, an unstoppable dance hit with its marvellous arpeggiators. “Underground Gardener” doesn’t let the rhythm up at all, with those wind instruments popping up for the chorus and the vocoder that takes a leading role, while the track continues to steadily raise the temperature. “Stay in My World” is pop par excellence; I’ve been playing it over and over and I think I can still hear Neil Tennant with shoegaze and dream-pop aspirations… And “Siebenland” confirms the KRAFTWERK theory with one of its verses sung in German and that martial, tireless rhythmic base, to end up wearing out our ankles.
A majestic single that is undoubtedly going to make MILKNAUT one of the most talked-about groups in the very near future, and which will turn them into contemporary emblems of synth-pop.
