If you already hit play on this, there is no way you are paying attention to whatever the f–k was going on about a minute ago. Game over. If you are anything like me (read: uncoordinated), you are three steps deep into a really precarious and unsustainable sequence of ecstatic dance moves.
Painted Palms‘ new single “Disintegrate” is an aptly named dance-floor-worthy jam that channels Zonoscope-era Cut Copy, mid aughts DFA Records, ’80s pop and beyond. The DFA connection is a little more tangible here though: former DFA house engineer Eric Broucek played helped mix the duo’s forthcoming second album, Horizons. That is an extremely exciting prospect for the rest of the album, as Broucek played a crucial role in crafting some of the best dance music that arose throughout the past ten years.
Chris Prudhomme and Reese Donohue sound more than confident on this ebullient track and if that is indicative of the things we can expect from the new album, than I am stoked for all the embarrassing dancing I am about to commit to.
Horizons drops on September 4 via Polyvinyl.
