James Murphy has built a career on artful repetition so it’s good to hear him at it again (and again).
In this latest version of infinity, a 303-style bassline squelches and slurs under a tightly-compressed disco beat while disorientating Rapture-esque guitars screech in the background.
Murphy chants “One touch is never enough” with an unsettling determination, and his frankly spooky Phil Oakey vocal is softened by call-and-response chanting from Nancy Whang. It’s hypnotic, danceable and richly layered, giving more away with each listen…
Oh, and the slightly wonky 808 drums that kick in after six minutes? Genius.
