Reference points make for easy reading. They also degrade the power of imagination. Having said that it is all too tempting to employ the words Post-Punk in relation to Aili x Transistorcake. Possibly because of the cutting twang of real bass guitar or Aili’s icy cool vocal delivery defiantly set in amongst the Dub effects and uncomplicated pound of drums. But whatever it is the pure pleasure of this ultimately seductive number ticks all of those boxes while feeling distinctly, proudly 21st century. Clocking in at a perfectly formed 3.37 minutes this is all you need to defy the drab, grey of outside as the positive surge of voice and instrumental melody captures the emotional reward.
