This blend of world music vibes, modern instrumentation and a big choral presence reminds of Toto – sorry, don’t hit me. A charismatic composition and deft arrangement of elements that, in less-skilled hands, could easily have jarred or come off as twee.
Smooth lounge-house-jazz of the kind I haven’t heard since the early 90s. Equally apt for
chilling on a sofa with a martini or moving sedately around the dance floor. Cool in every
Dark and funky electropop with sultry grrl vocal. Dolls is to Garbage what Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight is to Tim Burton’s Batman. Radio friendly.
Terrifyingly Santana-like at the outset but cruises onward to a far less obnoxious space. Pub rock of a far more cheerful and groovy ilk than Radiohead’s usual fare.
Smooth, rolling, pop-rock soundtrack to urban detachment. Mood and instrumentation echo Echo and the Bunnymen. The female voice brings up the mood a little, although personally I could live without the slight country twang.
Smoothly groovy Canto R&B boy band fare. Cute and naive compared to the more brash Korean material that’s dominating the airwaves lately, and infused with the classic HK street-level love story vibe.
