Daphne and Celeste

Alarms (Ben Jacobs)

By • May 7th, 2018 • Category: Single review

Daphne and Celeste? Could this be the most unlikely comeback of all time? They vanished around 1999 after an infamous Reading Festival appearance which involved a lot of bottles, filled with not very nice liquids, were lobbed at them onstage.

This single is not in fact the first evidence of a comeback, there was some music in 2015 as well… ‘Alarms’ is their second Max Tundra-produced single from an album out last month ‘Daphne and Celeste Save the World’ (well someone has to…). It is a poppy little number, autotuned and with heavy electronic backing, a bit like an old Girls Aloud track, nothing wrong with that.

In this age of uncertainty it is rather nice to have them back, in all their bouncy glory, a bit tongue-in-cheek possibly but this could be the sound of summer 2018…
