Listening to Montreal’s Under Electric Light’s new ‘Blue’ EP brings back so many memories, happy ones it has got to be said. Theirs is a sound that is distilled from the dreamiest of sources. One minute you have January lapping at your ears, the next it’s as if Ride had repaired their friendship fences and reformed. What UEL do well is to broach the untouchable forces that they descend from and invest their own creative talents into the pot. The EP is consistently strong and it’s difficult to pick a particular highlight. ‘Sitting Here’ is effortlessly brilliant, all swirling textures and moody detours. Danny Provencher has his Mark Gardener’s down to a tee and the ragged bass lines raise the decibel level to make it audible as far away as OX4. KD
