"Bright and bold synth ditties and the brassy pipes of brainchild Jean-Philip Grobler."
South African-born Brooklyn-based electro poster child St Lucia wears his love for '80s bombast proudly on his sleeve in this humble offering.
Matter picks up where 2013's When The Night left off with bright and bold synth ditties and the brassy pipes of brainchild Jean-Philip Grobler. Joyous opener Do You Remember? wouldn't be out of place at the end credits of a John Hughes rom-com, whereas Home stands far better on its two feet with a multi-tracked vocal and a wall of electro buzzes and snappy drum machine beats. Single Dancing On Glass has the same glossy lines but they back off to let Grobler's chops shine.
