Having introduced Ivory Wave earlier this year, with some enthusiasm on hitting play, not being well disposed towards vocoders the opening phrases had me scratching my head in doubt, only for that to rapidly be dispelled as Frankie soon flowers in to a a trippE track which would not have been out of place at The Haçienda.

The synth melts in to the instrumentation to create a spiralling psychedelia of cascaded rock from which the vocal drifts in and out of focus, demanding of an immediate replay. An extended 12″ dayglo yellow vinyl version would not be unwelcome either.
