Pablo Clements and James Griffith have been members of the legendarily wonderful UNKLE since their War Stories album. Here they trail their forthcoming 'Distant Focus Vol 1 album with a track featuring the vocal debut of Joel Wells. It's a tune for those who like their Krautrock, like their electronic with a Motorik feel that reminds you of early Suicide. Wells' vocals have enough of the John Grant about them that the track carries a flavour of the latter's 'Pale Green Ghosts' but is also close enough to then falsetto of the (stultifyingly dull) Sam Smith that he may be able to convert some of today's safe pop kids to real music.
