New: Justice – Helix
For a while now Civilization passing me by the title single, ‘Audio, Video, Disco’, tickled me in all the right places. It felt like an electro opera, a master class in creating a killer hook and gentle yet persuasive sonic escalation. So when Helix dropped a few hours ago I was genuinely excited to hear it. It turns out this excitement was warranted. Helix isn’t clever or a particular detachment from their previous efforts, yet what it lacks in clear experimentation it makes up for in the form of a killer guitar riff and funky as fuck groove. And sometimes folks, that’s all you need.
