Turn back, Skrillex fans. This is not the drop you are looking for. Come on in, the rest of you: there’s much to love in these ecstatic bursts of spaced-out energy that drop and shift in pitch in ways the EDM kids can only dream of. Don’t be fooled by the stylised Japanese name; the four-piece hail from Denmark and recorded this, their second LP, in Copenhagen – although the sinister drone of opener ‘The Great Pacific Garbage Patch’ surely originated from Mars. By ‘Moped’, the band have shaken themselves out of their daze and are shouting call-outs to ‘Smoke On The Water’. This is folk music transmitted from the far corner of the universe.
