Age of Consent – ‘The Beach’ FREE DOWNLOAD

Age of Consent are releasing debut single “The Beach” on the September 5th. Produced by Luke Smith (who can boast Depeche Mode, Foals and Crystal Fighters in his credit roll) the song is a dark electro-pop number. Creepy is one word that could be used to sum it up and the track is a clear departure from their Shitdisco days.

That’s not to say it’s a bad effort, on the contrary it’s an addictive track, the sort that requires a few listens before you really get it. The steady underlying beat littered with 80s synths and echoing vocals have a certain charm. However, the ‘Blue Steel’ gaze of front man Joe Reeves in the accompanying video was the thing that really did it for me.

IS TROPICAL have remixed the track, available for free download below, and bar the jarring intro (ouch), I have to say that I’m liking their electroclash/robotic take on it.
