Electro, melodic and unlike anything I’ve ever heard, this record from IDER is full of raw synth-focused anthems. The London duo rock harmonies with none of the twee connotations you’d perhaps expect. Instead, themes of mental health, absent fathers and 20-something anxieties are all covered with a backdrop of dance beats and radio friendly choruses.

Easy listening but with a deeper meaning, Emotional Education displays unique voices that blend together deliciously make IDER stand out in a world of empty pop. The lyrics are bold, with clear direction taken from Lana Del Rey’s melancholic genre; it’s an essential grown-up ‘girl power’ record for millennials. Add exemplary track Wu Baby to your summer playlist.
