Dive back into 1980s indie pop nostalgia with The Radio Set. So last century? Not anymore. Picture this if you can: Kim Wilde has returned but is now fronting New Order. Gotta Crush On You is the stand out song from this 4-track EP. The track was produced by Peter Hook himself and with a wonderful Hook-esque bassline transcending every part of the mix. Synths and sympathy, rhyming lyrics. What’s not to like here?

Bullet is an engaging dancefloor filler; elsewhere, it’s all very well chilling out and feeling delight lighting up that Long Cigarette but it could just be the reason why the singer finds she is trying hard to Breathe. Take deep lungs full of The Radio Set and they will grow on you.
