Iglu & Hartly
In This City
Iglu & Hartly are unreconstructed West Coast beach-bum cheesemongers of the most shameless order, and ‘In This City’ is as brazen as the ’80s revival can get with its sparkly splonks of Pretty Woman synths and a chorus that must have dropped off the bottom of Starship in 1986. But what a chorus it is; the sort of joyful pop bearhug you’d lick blended strawberries off the nipples of, if only you didn’t get a nasty aftertaste of Deep Heat.
