Expanding on his already notorious style, Lifetime Volume 1 provides us with his markedly fresh combination of disco and house, infused with a strong homage to 1980’s pop and funk. The result is a series of compositions that leave the listener happily oscillating between sounds of youthful nostalgia and the future sound of disco.
The first track of the EP is the ethereal “Wish It Could Last”, a collaboration with 2011 Drive Soundtrack darlings Electric Youth. With a marked Pet Shop Boys vibe, tracks are injected with strange new life in a juxtaposition between indie dance beats and Bronwyn’s whimsical vocals.
Can’t Promise Anything with Human Life veers Volume 1 into different (yet strangely familiar) territory, and makes you hope with all your might that someone will choreograph a dance routine to accompany it. Again we’re presented with patchwork collection of sounds from a bygone and much romanticized era, but with fierce funk riffs that bite back.
Magic takes us on another disco-tainted journey that merges flawlessly with the best elements of the second age of golden pop. In Pelifics own words, “The track started off as a homage to one of my all time favourite tracks “Nothing Looks the Same in the Light” from Wham!’s album Fantastic.”
