‘Polish disco, ’80s Japanese pop and Paradise Garage mixes’. To you, those three things might mean nothing. To James Cook (of Stockport electro group Delphic) and Melodic Records label boss Andy Moss, it meant everything. In fact, it was those three things they bonded over as they were churning out the funky, Caribou-style banger ‘Turn Your Head’ under the guise of new side-project Boredom.
With previous techno glimmerings shown on their first track ‘Geometry’ earlier this month, they’re bookending it with another new track, which will feature on their debut release on September 30. ‘Turn Your Head’ is full of modern beats and wobbly synths, but it feels like it could have been recorded at any point in the last 30 years and might have even been spinning at the Haçienda raves back in the late ’80s.
Though Cook and Moss’ influences might be diverse and niche, their second single is a impressive audition for both the mainstream tastemakers and for the dancefloor. Take a listen to ‘Turn Your Head’ below:
