POWER OF POP MUSIC ALBUM REVIEW: STARWALKER – S/T

ALBUM REVIEW: STARWALKER – S/T

By Jeaneen Lund

By Jeaneen Lund

Background
Two electropop icons – France’s Jean-Benoit Dunckel (Air / Tomorrow’s World) and Icelandic composer Bardi Johannsson (Bang Gang, Lady & Bird) make up Starwalker.

Strengths
Despite the misleading opening track – the saccharine pop of “Holidays” – this eponymous full-length debut is exactly as expected, when considering the pedigree of its constituents. There are gorgeous tunes to savour and epic widescreen synth arrangements to marvel at.

Highlights
“Losers Can Win”, “Everybody’s Got Their Own Way”, “Le President”.

Sounds Like
Air, Daft Punk, Bang Gang.

Bottom Line
An intelligent balance between old school electronica and classic pop music. A entertaining album that keeps the brain juices flowing as well.
