STRFKR "Being No One, Going Nowhere"
Oh man, are STRFKR ever back (not that they really went anywhere, but you gotta start a blurb somehow, right?)! Being No One, Going Nowhere (Polyvinyl) is a groovy, synthy, poptastic good time. More of a dance-pop release than their previous band-oriented release Miracle Mile, we find the band focusing their gaze to things like Italian disco of the ‘70s, synth-y new wave of the ‘80s, and alt-electronica of the modern era a la Phoenix and MGMT. The whole party is driven forward by infectious bass lines, downtown beats, and a M83-ish collection of perfectly produced synth sounds. Check out the disco-prog strains of the laid back bounce of “Never Ever.”
