About this item


Italians Do It Better has become one of those must-have labels here at Piccadilly Records over the past couple of years, so it's no surprise that this album from Desire totally hits the spot with us. If you've not heard the name before, Desire are an IDIB super-group comprised of Johnny Jewell from Glass Candy, Nattie from Chromatics and vocalist Megan from Montreal. This debut long player features eight tracks that cover all those Italians Do It Better bases we love; cosmic, post-punk and new wave influenced down-tempo gear, and Italo-style Euro disco. However, in 2009’s cosmic-Italo disco overload, it’s Desire’s knack of turning all these influences into something original, seductive, charming and unique that really stands out. Check “Mirror Mirror”, "Don't Call", "Dans Mes Reves" and the Shangri-las meets Les Disques Du Crepuscule sound of "Under Your Spell" for further evidence of Desire’s brilliance.
