Somewhere in a deep dark alley, seeping up from under the dirty pavement, belongs the falsetto-laden nightclub funk of LE BOOM. Having recently returned home to Dublin from the Big Apple, their underground pop oozes cool and a dishevelled sleepless glamour like the big city from which it was born; the result of recording sessions in a disused Brooklyn warehouse, tiny NYC apartment bedrooms and an antique store basement.

They’ve already been likened to The xx with a disco makeover, but the earworming ‘Animal’ sits closer to the soul-informed grooves of Blood OrangeKindness and Jungle – albeit with an overarching pop sensibility that could see them balloon in the next few months à la Foster The People post-‘Pumped Up Kicks’.
