RAC - 'Dont Talk To' EP

Album Info

  • Release Date: September 30, 2013
  • Label: Interscope
5 / 10 Remixer Andre Allen Anjos is the brains behind ‘Don’t Talk To’, and he provides the synthy thread running between these four songs – but the disparity of the vocalists singing on each track muddles this EP. Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke and one-time Mark Ronson collaborator MNDR head up ‘Let Go’, a song that robs the bassline from The Clash’s ‘Train In Vain’ and pits the vocalists against each other, resulting in Okereke earnestly emoting while MNDR chirpily tells him to “give it up”. Elsewhere Penguin Prison features on the party pop of ‘Hollywood’ which resembles a lost Phoenix song. And Colorado singer Katie Herzig’s coo on ‘We Belong’ offsets the spiralling keyboards in a Vodafone advert kind of way. That’s not a compliment.
