Gorgon City so succinctly encapsulate summer 2014 that their autumn album release feels as inappropriate as the Adidas sliders and Vote No T-shirt you’ve been sporting all summer. Still, it’s hard not to look favourably towards this pop-house powerhouse: producers Kye Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott, plus their army of club singers – Katy B, Laura Welsh and Jennifer Hudson among them – may not be especially innovative, but it’s the young, dumb and intellectually numb elements of Sirens that make it scintillating. Sometimes it’s a little empty – Take It All gives little back – but when they hit that melancholy ache just right, it’s electric.
