LISTEN: Pet Shop Boys – ‘Fluorescent’ Clip

Wrap your ears around another taster of what new LP Electric sounds like

On July 15, Pet Shop Boys release their new album Electric (artwork above) and we’ve just posted our Track-By-Track review, featuring a snippet of the LP track ‘Fluorescent’ – have a listen below:

Says Luke Turner of the track: "A moody, murky number and one that starts with a solid, techno-inspired boom and whizz, with a vinyl crackle too and what sounds like a sexual gasp chopped out and used as a rhythm. The whole thing sounds really analogue. This is shaping up to be the most dancefloor-oriented Pet Shop Boys album in years, and ‘Fluorescent’ in particular might lend itself to remixes, with a great street-lights-twinkling refrain now and then, and Tennant’s voice set low in the mix amid all the analogue whirling and fizzing. A classic Pet Shop Boys’ exploration of nocturnal decadence – ‘at midnight / It’s time for business… every scandal has its price’."
