Is 2013 the way people in the past thought the future would be? Probably not: less silver jumpsuits, more Twitter. Taking their name from the defunct retro-futurist BBC tech show and their cues from The Human League, Air’s Jean-Benoît Dunckel and New Young Pony Club’s Lou Hayter have come together to make sweet, sweet new wave. The throbbing bassline and delicate vocals of ‘So Long My Love’ are a highlight, and the melancholic ache of ‘Don’t Let Them Bring You Down’ will floor those of a sentimental disposition, but this is more of a homage to the past than a shining vision of music’s future.
