Kipple Arcadia (Last Night From Glasgow)

By • Nov 8th, 2018 • Category: Album review

‘Dream pop’ is this quartet’s self-imposed genre, and for once the description couldn’t be more apt.

Swimmy synths and pulsating beats, at once retro but futuristic, lend a backdrop for Lily Higham’s breathy, half-whispered vocals.

Opener ‘Home Sweet Home’, despite a nonchalant f-bomb or three, motors along nicely, its vaguely oriental theme recalling 1980s Japanese synthpop, and a contrast to the neo-classical piano on the beatless, breathless ‘Float Through Wires’.

Other high points include the dancefloor-ready ‘Space Junk’, ‘Blue Flowers’ contrast between plaintive keyboard and searing electric guitar, and debut single ‘Suneaters’, its very 3D stereo effect drawing the listener further into L-Space’s dreamy world of pop.

‘Kipple Arcadia’ is out now. This article originally appeared in the Arbroath Herald.
