The Need To Know (Alex Tronic)

By • Jul 23rd, 2020 • Category: Album review

A good album should have artwork that reflects its musical content. ‘The Need To Know’ does the job beautifully.

Both sounds and artwork are very 70s in their use of flamboyant colours and shades. You get the feeling that, if you saw the figures on the front cover in full, they’d have Afros, sideburns and fully-stacked heels. It invites you in and makes you want to join the figures on the dance floor.

Each track has its own particular hook or riff that makes it stand out, makes you want to hear it right away, once again. This album provides a welcome escape from the pressures of lockdown life.

The deep, rolling bass lines under each of the tracks create a journey away from the confines you are in, towards somewhere much warmer and friendlier and we all need a bit of that right now. Friendly, fiery and funky music.
