Sometimes caffeine plugs neatly into music like a life enhancement, especially in the cool of an autumn morning. Lifted from the duo’s forthcoming debut album Echo Echo it’s to Open that I turn my attention because it draws you into its world of picture forming, poignant elegance so smoothly. It is a gorgeous, sumptuous journey cruising Jazzy reflections of times past and present as horns blow, drums shuffle punctuating individual moments, while keys haunt the rhythms in exhilarating fashion. It’s also down to those opening chords – beauty in simpilicty. Kink, as the name suggests, feels more dangerous for night-time fetishists as notes reach a heavier, smokier intensity.
