Sitting somewhere between New Order, Goldfrapp and The Cure, 'Hugs' ranges from the washed-out bliss of 'Aah Ooh' to the crunching stomp of recent EP lead track 'Walk, Don't Walk', and including a re-imagining of the Afghan Whigs track 'Milez iz Ded'. The album's central theme is about wanting more than your lot, about taking risks in life and love, and if it doesn't work out? You pick yourself up, dust yourself down and do it all over again, but this time a little bit better. 'Hugs' also features guest vocals by Maps and Kaori Tsuchida from The Go! Team.
Quality debut record from two of the most prolific writer/producer/mixers in the indie-pop scene. Almost a decade in the DJ booth for Mark and Tanya has inspired this set of tracks - uplifting, skilfully crafted and heartening. A record which epitomizes the act's friendship and their love of classic dance records.
'A polished debut album that recognises the strength of a great pop song.' - Irish Daily Star
