LISTEN TO ‘CAROLINE, NO’ AND ‘YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS’ FROM THE ALBUM HERE
“Absolutely sensational! I’m blown away by the completeness and maturity of this work; it sounds like they’ve spent a lifetime doing music like this. The production is utterly astonishing – I couldn’t have imagined that a big band palette, so gloriously fat and dirty, could be combined with digitalism so beautifully. An amazing piece of work”. -Brian Eno
