It is a rare instance indeed that one would assign an album a particular gender, but it is something which Shy Child themselves have done for their new album "Liquid Love".
From start to finish, this is twinkling, elegant electronic pop of the highest order, with some naughty winks to the past while simultaneously aiming determinedly for the future. So the title track boldly reappropriates the central riff from Fleetwood Mac's "Everywhere" as the starting point for a shimmering pop odyssey, while instant classics like "The Beatles" and "Depth of Feel" genetically splice the vintage, feel-good vibes of Hall and Oates with some serious cosmic disco shapes, and the seven-minute opus "Criss Cross" ebbs and flows on waves of mellifluous synths and Cafarella's east coast croon.
