Let's imagine Chrissie Hynde or Jane Siberry mixing it with MGMT on a summer holiday in Nassau shall we? Actually, Mooli have gone one step better and recreated that crazy notion with Love Hurts, a snappy little electro-pop lolloper that clocks in at just under the pop-required 3-minutes and successfully pisses all over pretty much anything around this week.
Mooli is a double-act of Ben Copland and Kristina Smith, they've earwormed their way into Pete Tong's affections and they're 'like that' with the Toolroom Knights crew, which is all quite odd because this sits more with Kitsune Music or some such arty imprint, rather than the pill and powder crew at the local superclub. I like, I like, I like. More please.
