WWYH - Friendly Fire
FILTER Grade: 87%
By Jonathan Falcone on November 18, 2010
The Concretes have always been masters of pop and with WYWH the band pushes beyond the current obsession for Euro-beat synth disco pervading everything. Instead, using those same sounds, the band makes music that is actually dark, sultry, sexy, genuinely disco—and about half the speed of everything else. It’s bookended by classics; “Good Evening” and “WYWH” are sex with a drumbeat and strobe light, as Lisa Milberg’s voice finds the perfect place between haunting and seductive. This is The Concretes back and better than ever.
