Daily electricity to load your batteries
Band: BABY JEY
Who: Dance-pop orientated
tandem from Canada.
New single: WHAT’S THE POINT OF SAYING SORRY?
It draws inspiration from both classic and organ house of the 80s and 90s, and was recorded using vintage keyboards from that era: the Korg M1 and the Yamaha Motif ES7. I’ll feature on the duo’s upcoming album, named Crop Circles, out November 24th.
“Saying sorry can be important but spoken language isn’t the only way that people communicate. Some people listen to the song and think it’s about someone who is
bitter, saying ‘who cares that I’m hurt, as long as we’re sleeping together, then everything
must be fine.’ But other people take a straight up understanding of the lyrics – that words
can only say so much. There are things we can express with physical touch that are also emotionally powerful.”
TUTV: You can shake your hips smoothly to this Saturday Night Fever thrill every
day of the week. This pop-disco titillation wouldn’t be out of place on an album of
synth-dance stars Hot Chip or on an 80s LP by British dream pop Prefab Sprout. And
on the chorus, my ears hear echoes of the Bee Gees‘ high-pitched voices. I guess you
can imagine by now what you can expect to make your day.
Don’t say sorry, just dance.
