The Figures are a new band from London, consisting of Jamie Blanco and James Delay, who are already getting some love from the always on the money TMS, their first track is ‘Velo’ and it’s a lovely summery slow-mo piece of disco, it’s beautiful, delicate and truly unique. We can see this making it on to a lot of mixtapes as an amazing intro track.
The EP also comes with a remix from the Cosmonauts, who have added some lovely gurgling bass, snappy percussion and an 80’s italo lick of paint. And it captures the ethereal charm of the original perfectly.
‘Velo’ is released worldwide through iTunes from Sunday May 1st and available in advance 1 week prior, exclusively through the Russell Club Records online store at russellclubrecords.com
