Ronika - 'Automatic'

Pop music for credible pop fans

It’s annoying when people bang on about credible and non-credible pop, creating weird, paternalistic gradations when all that matters is whether it’s good or shit. It makes me feel like an utter dick, then, to suggest that this is pop music for credible pop fans, from the right ’80s references (Tom Tom Club, Prince) to the patina of DIY grain in the bit-crunched laptop production. Good too, mind, not shit.
