Published Jun 03, 2013Synth-pop lifers the Pet Shop Boys promised that their upcoming album, Electric, would be "pretty banging," and the newly revealed cut "Vocal" certainly fits that description.
This six-and-a-half-minute track begins with tuneful crooning and dramatic synthesizer chords. The beat enters just after the one-minute mark and lifts the mood until it fully explodes into a thumping groove a couple of minutes in. From there, the song is pure dance floor energy.
Electric is out on July 15 through the band's own x2 imprint, a subsidiary of Kobalt Label Services. It follows Elysium, which arrived last year.
