Colaars – Backseat Kisses

Perfect soundtrack to a 1980s ice skating movie that takes itself just a bit too seriously. Laconic disco-pop with plenty of reverb and tinkliness. Likely to be ignored in the West, but who knows, it could be a huge hit in its native Ukraine.

WALK THE MOON – Shut Up and Dance

Did I miss the memo about yet another 80s revival? Super happy-time disco hybrid of Invisible Touch by Genesis and anything by Rick Astley. Described by Wikipedia as ‘indie rock’ which just made my head explode.
