Whenever you see the words ‘reminiscent of early Daft Punk’ in the subject line of an email, you immediately think: ‘ah, just another wannabe producer trying to sound like T-bang and G-man – nice try’.
Well, despite our cynicism we’re glad to report Australian whipper snapper Airwolf – and his latest single ‘Hanging On’ – does indeed sound like early Daft. And thankfully it’s not some douchy pastiche but rather a rubbery piece of French Touch that could easily start a party from a different continent. It’s even got one of those mildly annoying pitched vocals that would normally see even the most ardent touch enthusiast reach for the razor – but actually it really works in this case.
We’re totally sold.
Out November 15.
