Lemonade: "Softkiss"

There are two kinds of plush neo-synthpop revivalists: the ones that focus on creating dense, impenetrable sounds and the bands who focus on accessible, melodic hooks. Lemonade don't even attempt to have it both ways, sticking resolutely to the latter approach. That's not to say that they don't have some sweet synth pads pounding out assertive chords, but "Softkiss" is more about recapturing the pop sensibilities of the 80s, where even the more obtuse tunes were still required to stick in your craw.

Diver is out now on True Panther Sounds.
