London-based duo Bamboo, consisting of Rachel Horwood and Nick Carlisle, make lush, colorful synth pop which is equally influenced by Asian traditions as well as the most forward-thinking pop music of the '80s. Composed and recorded over a two-year period, their third full-length, Daughters of the Sky, is their most developed effort to date. While The Dragon Flies Away was an intriguing exploration of danceable grooves, adding post-disco and house influences to the more electro-folk sound of Bamboo's initial release, the duo have clearly spent more time focusing on crafting hooks this time around; just witness "Weeping Idols," a highly sophisticated yet instantly memorable escapist gem.
