Comments:

My Dear Disco make lively danceable ectronica with deliciously evocative singing. I'm reminded of the forgotten nineties duo Banderas, who also had great melodies with a slant of melancholy to them despite being quite dancefloor friendly. "White Lies" has an immediately catchy tune and uses a vocoder to distort the vocals. "Madame Eon" is softer and the lead singer's voice takes over nicely. My Dear Disco are clearly headed somewhere special. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
