Whereas the debut was a perfect example of funk and soul, “Following” is a progressive, indie electronic track that would make Ladytron proud. And I love it. I cannot stop listening to it and since first downloading it, I’ve listened to it 16 times and counting.
It makes perfect sense to me now why new wave master Ferry chose the band to support him in his US tour in September and October, given their updated, electronic sound. Unexpectedly I really like this departure in style, and I am eagerly awaiting the full album.
To mark the upcoming release of Form & Control, The Phenomenal Handclap Band are offering a free download of the track “Following” (mp3).
