As if to reinforce the idea that making music in the modern age isn’t bounded by genre or geography, it doesn’t seem that remarkable that Hamburg electronic duo Digitalism would hook up with US indie scensters Youngblood Hawke on their latest release Wolves.  The result is the perfect blend of Euro-disco and American vocals and song writing. I’m not sure if Indietronica is actually a recognised term but even if it isn’t, it describes this collaboration perfectly.


Offering a nod to the conventions of Indie song structures whilst embracing the beats and flavours of house music, Wolves is the perfect continuation of the Indie-dance crossover style they explored on their first album, Idealism. Garage band attitude meets EDM technology, euphoric, positive, upbeat and fun. Sounds like the sound track to a great night out to me.
