No, it’s not a typo. No, Robyn Loau and company aren’t making a comeback. There’s a very purposeful space between the words ‘Girl’ and ‘Friend’ and there’s something oddly familiar about ‘Stop’, the new single from the up and coming London-based outfit.
Though the band only came together earlier this year, and they’ve still to crack the 500 ‘Like’ mark on Facebook, their music sounds both familiar and assured; born from a mutual love and respect for the music of David Bowie and Roxy Music to name but two.
We’re hearing subtle New Order-style influences in here too, so while it’s rather retro, it’s something we reckon the cool kids might just get their teeth into too.
