Wargirl’s second studio album is a tonic for the times. From the kinetic beat of opening song Drive, Dancing Gold is a transportive experience that makes you want to close your eyes and dance like you’re in a Coke ad (you know the one).

Consciously uplifting music written collaboratively by six musicians blending seven(ish) different genres, the album is 70s disco for the 20s, by way of punk, Afrobeat and easy listening. Yes, that sounds like a lot and yes, it works – the result is sunshine and freedom; nostalgia for road trips we never took. Hang On in particular has Donna Summer vibes, while Pretend is ripe for a mash up with The Zombies’ She’s Not There
