MGMT – Electric Feel

Is this the chilling out of NU Rave or a fresh and funky revival of the 80s electro kick?

Who knows, but one thing is for sure, the adventurous American pairing of Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, continue to shine the nuggets from this year’s topsy-turvy, quirky electro rumbling debut album, ‘Oracular Spectacular’.

‘Electric Feel’ is a shunting single that cobbles together the instrumental roving of Gary Numan, the high pitch vocal provocation of Scissor Sisters and tops it off with a Timo Maas vibe that varies in impact. Worldly, boundary crossing expressionism is the end result. It is sure to have a range of commentators drawing attention to this backward gazing, yet fresh feeling duo.
