About this item

Back with a bang for 2021 the TD team tame another couple of unclassics, offering end of night emotion and druggy chug on this wavey wax.

The A side looks skywards from the Mediterranean shore, waves of delay lapping its toes as Italo melancholy and Balearic sincerity go straight to its head. A lovelorn ragazza finds comfort in kalimba and 'Wicked Game' sobs softly from a nearby tabaccheria, signing off a postcard of this holiday romance.

Things take a turn for the trippy on the flip as 'Close Orbit' shifts gears on a synth-pop standard in favour for a zero gravity throb. Packed with slap bass, slanky percussion and the faint hint of new beat, this Afro-cosmic stomper is a slow tempo, high energy heater.

Limited Press - Numbered Insert - Drum Fun Guaranteed.

Bon soir et bisous.


Mine says: Talking Drums are back with Vol. 4 - and I think it's their best yet! I've been obsessed with 'Under The Sky' ever since Patrick teased it in his brilliant 'Bedsit Boogie & Paranoid Pop' mix (if you haven't heard it yet be sure to check out the Piccadilly Records Mixcloud page!) and I'm equally excited about afro chugger 'Close Orbit' on the flip side. MEGA!
