While there seems to be a bit of an ’80s, kick going on these days, particularly in music, most bands embracing it seem happy to plunder past glories and ride that nostalgia zeitgeist to the cash till ring of conformity rather than offer up anything particularly new.

Invitation is the sound of distant 80s synth vibes woven through chilled, contemporary dance culture. It is dreamlike yet swaps untethered ambience for more structured beat patterns. It echoes with a slight sense of familiarity yet is nothing less than a song, and indeed a band, focused on where things go next rather than where they have already been.
