Reliably informed



Released: 25.11.22







Arriving fresh on the heels of the marvellous lead single The Blue Star, Infiniti Drive is the debut transmission from North East-based Autoleisureland, a reunion of sorts for local sophistipop legends The Kane Gang, with founding members David Brewis and Paul Woods having collaborated on material over an extensive four year period.

The fruits of their labour are abundant in stylistic left-turns, perfectly polished hooks and crystalline production. Instead of safely returning to the ground last trod on 1987’s Miracle, the duo look further back to the big-budget, cerebral blockbuster LPs of the 70s, with intricate arrangements, a broad instrumental palette and phenomenal songwriting at every turn. It’s a long-overdue, brilliantly crafted and wholly essential record.
