De Lux – Keyboards cause we’re black and white (Innovative Leisure)

Another winning slice of baked sunshine soul from the LA duo.

Once again the bouncy and deceptively friendly backbeat camouflages serious intent much like Talking Heads once did with ‘Once in a lifetime’.

In this case both the need to disco and the internal struggle showcased in the highly entertaining video.

I especially love the whining one note synth line which remains consistent and true as things clatter all around it.

A great way to start the year.
