A band’s press statement says: Thrashing it out on the dancefloor, ‘Suck This Tangerine’ deals with the difficulties of a society in never ending crisis (‘Funny Money’) to the highs and lows in relationships (‘He’s Who’, ‘Let You Go’) and there’s a guest appearance from ex-Kellie Julia Worley on ‘Close Talker’. Recorded at home in Buenos Aires, the chemistry of the duo’s formative years remains as does their febrile new wave post-punk sound soaked in fiery dance beats and dub-pop.
After their splendid 2016 album Friends And Lovers the dazzling Argentinian punky
pop duo LAS KELLIES return with their sixth longplayer. An overall dynamizing record
that combines trippy, infectious pop tunes with electrifying early 80s instrumentation. Throughout the rousing album the influence of experimental post-punk outfit Public Image Ltd‘s second album Metal Box is obvious. Especially Jah Wobble‘s pumping bass and Keith Levene’s stunning metallic guitar play. And it works brilliantly. You will also
hear echoes of Gang Of Four‘s staccato funk. Welcome back Las Kellies!
