More new music for your lug'oles. This time it comes courtesy of a duo by the name of Funktionslust that were put on our radar recently and have been really enjoying this week.
Their newest work, titled A Different Street is hard to pin-down, sitting somewhere between pop and more left-field sounds. The experimental tones present themselves in a host of mechanical sounds and clunks draped over a progressively melodic production courtesy of producer and multi-instrumentalist of the duo Joe Gillick, woven wonderfully in amongst vocals of Sage Redman.
It's a real great demonstration of what I'm finding exciting in contemporary popular music at the minute - slightly unconventional in production with its rawness and sharpness but also quite adventerous and unafraid in how vocals are entwined around all of this. A mention also for the great artwork by Rebecca Ounstead who's exhibition Tassles 'n' That I managed to catch at Sheffield's Bloc Projects as part of her recent residency there.
All in all, we're most definitely looking forward to hearing more from Funktionslust. Listen to A Different Street for yourself in full below and be sure to keep ears to the ground for more from them hopefully in the not too distant future.
