GREAT GOOD FINE OK - EP REVIEW

Great Good Fine OK - Body Diamond EP (Neon Gold/Epic/Sony)

Release Date: Out now as digital download and limited 10" vinyl

Brooklyn duo Great Good Fine OK sound like the response of a passive aggressive, beaten down husband who knows it's just not worth the argument. What GGFO actually are is a pair of 80s electro inspired popsters that want to make you dance as much as think. The EP opens up with the infectious 'You're The One For Me' which is nothing like the similarly titled Smiths song as it actually bounces, swerves and jiggles like a hot-pant wearing disco queen with only dance in her soul. 'Not Going Home' is up next and has a more child-like innocence to it with melodies that Mika would have loved and that pure 80s pop feel running through the core.

The Jean Michel-Jarre meets Vampire Weekend in a Miami cocktail bar vibe of 'By My Side' is something to behold and you can almost picture the white suit jackets, wet perms and neon leg warmers. 'Say It All' brings matters to a close with what appears to be an electro-pop ballad that never really hits the emotional heights you might hope for but does tick most of the atmospheric electro boxes that bands aim for these days. This is polished pop music with slick production and some luxurious vocals that, as a package, is pretty hard to ignore or resist.
