Last year saw the emergence of London disco outfit Payfone. Their debut 12", titled "International Smark" became something of an underground hit with lovers of disco, electro and Balearic alike, sounding like a meeting between Metro Area, Abba and 80's video game sensation "Outrun". Now signed to Golf Channel, Payfone is back with a weighty boogie inspired 3 track E.P. packed with muscle and modern pop sensibility. This second release comes co-mixed to perfection by In Flagranti's Sasa Crnobrnja. The A side cut "Paradise" features the dubbed out vocals of 21 year old Louis Howard Jones and New Orleans native Dayna Talley over a distinct synth drum arrangement that rallies both heads and feet to the dance floor. Flip the record for 2 tracks that feature International Smark's Swedish / Finnish vocalist Tigerlight. First the deeply funky and minimal "Mice Life" channels Patrick Adams over some strident drums and staccato guitar. Closing cut "Subconscient Lamentation", a lush and exotic cover version of the 1970's Black Devil Disco Club album finale, takes us out on a deeper, slower and altogether hazier vibe, as the spacious and vibrant synth work over a strutting bass line and bluesy trumpet serve as a bedrock for Tigerlight's haunting whispered vocal.
