The Chemical Brothers are gearing up towards the release of Born In The Echoes, and after the success of 'Go' featuring Q-Tip, I was pretty excited for the wider release, in particular the tracks featuring St. Vincent and Beck. Well, we've now received the former, entitled 'Under Neon Lights', and unfortunately, it's not all that I had hoped for.
St. Vincent, known as Annie Clark to friends, is fairly eccentric herself, so her pairing with the Manchester duo is slightly out there, and has yielded a majority spoken track thar has some fans drawing comparisons to Talking Heads, and given Clark's previous collaboration with David Byrne, maybe that's not too far of a stretch. I'll continue to give it a few more listens, and hopefully it grows on me.
Born In The Echoes is due out on 7th July 2015.
