Genre/Influences: Dance-pop, electro-pop.
Background/Info: Digitalis has been set up in the 80s and can be seen as one of the electronic pioneers from the southern part of England. For this EP they invited a female guest singer (cf. Marlene) to sing on both featured songs.
Content: The title track sounds as soft dance-pop music featuring male vocals and female backings. You’ll also discover an “Extended Mix” and “Club Mix”. The B-side track is more electro-pop orientated and again featuring male- and female vocals. Next to the original edit there also is an “Instrumental Mix”.
+ + + : One thing is for sure, Digitalis are melody-makers and still have this feeling to compose perfect dance-music. I however prefer the B-side song “Could It Be That All Is Chaos”. The chorus with the female vocals is absolute remarkable and a passage you easily keep in mind.
– – – : The title track is okay, but a bit cliché. It also sounds a bit like dance music for teenagers.
Conclusion: This EP reveals 2 songs and 2 sides of Digitalis; commercial and dance at one side versus efficient electro-pop at the other side.
Best songs: “Could It Be That All Is Chaos”.
