M+A - SINGLE REVIEW

M+A - When (Monotreme Records) 
M+A - When

Release Date: 4th August 2014

M+A are an Italian duo who recently won the Glastonbury emerging talent competition which is a big burden to shoulder but on the evidence of this new single they really couldn't care less. You see, 'When' is a light, summery and very European sounding slice of dance-pop that straddles the divide between the mainstream and the indie market with a rolling piano melody, funky bass line and some gorgeous synth sounds that bring Lemon Jelly or Bentley Rhythm Ace to mind with the sensibilities of Soulwax of Ben's Symphonic Orchestra. I can understand why the good folk of Glastonbury picked these guys as hearing this music pumping out of a tent on a summer's day whilst holding a pint of cider and wearing a battered trilby is the epitome of summer time bliss. Gorgeous.
