It's familiar, but definitely an 80s vibe, no bad thing. I'm digging it.

Having just listened to it a second time, it occurred to me maybe he's trying to compete with Daft Punk? In his own way.

But it's only one song, will have to wait to see what the rest of the album sounds like.

Very different from his previous stuff, much more disco/80's-techno sounding.

Also a big North American tour announced.
Seems decidedly more pop-oriented and I'm not sure I like that. They already have a very studio polished sound and I worry about this album. Too much electronic stuff going on too, but it's not like they were ever a raw psych band anyway.

Hmmm. According to this
Quote:
Representatives for the band have stressed that this new swirling synth-led adventure is not the first single from the band's forthcoming album, the follow-up to 2012's Lonerism, but instead a track just for fans.
So maybe it's not from the new album?

That said, it makes me wonder if that's the direction the new album might go anyway. I wonder if this was maybe a "leftover" track from recording sessions for the album, and he/they decided to release it as a standalone single?

Anyway we'll find out eventually.

I disagree, I thought Lonerism was no less poppy than this track. Lonerism was totally a pop album as far as the song structures were concerned, except they were pop songs stretched and embellished with psychedelic edge. I don't feel this is really any different in that sense. Definitely a slicker production, but that was entirely expected after the popularity of the previous album, wasn't it?

Must admit, I like the direction he's going. Kevin Parker doing psychedelic synthpop would be mindblowing.

Im with Sidewinder. It seems Kev is hanging out with Mark Ronson too much.

They're using The Bold Arrow of Time in a Bud Lite commercial!
