Discodeine Act II. Pilooski and Pentile have adopted the Swimmer position to lead us into deep waters.

While their eponymous first album flirted with Jarvis Cocker or Matias Aguayo’s pop-electro hybrids to unearth jewels such as ‘Synchorize’ and ‘Singular’, their second takes us further into the abyss, where East and West are one (notably on ‘Aydin’, first single featuring Kevin Parker on vocalsĀ  – of Tame Impala).

This is where the lines between genres are really blurred. With Mark Kerr featuring on vocals throughout the album, with the exception of ‘Aydin’, Discodeine marks new territory where baroque arrangements rub shoulders with the striking lucidity of the compositions, and where the duo explore the dark side of the moon in a series of instrumentals suspended between the dance floor and the Milky Way.

Deep in the swimming pool, Discodeine has discovered the existence of new celestial creatures.
