Grand Theft Audio by Evil House Party
Pressing Electronic Pop into sassy shapes
Ok, they may not be breaking new ground with their self-described "depressive eurodance" but this is a stomping debut EP from the young Copenhagen-based duo Evil House Party, aka Emma Acs and Jacob Formann (Formann previously released music as Mini Esco on Posh Isolation). Think Miss Kittin or Royksopp & Robyn for a reasonable comparison. Labelling the five tracks anthemic would not be an overstatement either, I guarantee you'll be humming these tunes later. The only thing one may take issue with is the slight over reliance on autotune, which steers things dangerously close to the mainstream for my liking, but I reckon that's their destiny anyway.
