Reliably informed

The Last Of The Fallen Angels’ Red Dress has a sumptuous sleaziness in every sound, and the shifting repetitions of the track makes multiple listens an absolute requirement. A late-night neon lit drive of a song, the pedalling synth bass reminiscent of the rumble of the road, snare hits like driving over cat’s eyes, the distortion stalking the vocals like they’re crackling through static on the radio; it’s clear that every aspect of this track has been meticulously pored over.

Red Dress clearly has a flavour of Massive Attack and that mid-90s trip- hop sound in the production, but it’s treated contemporarily, and so feels like it still has something pressing to say. Against this intricate, hypnotic backing, Hannah Robinson’s featured vocals glisten through, drawling breathy, effortless harmonies.
