Elephant - Skyscraper

It's been a good fifteen months since we last heard from Amelia Rivas and Christian Pinchbeck, in which time they've split up (in both senses) and reformed (in at least one). An album is finally imminent, this first single, out 25th March, moving their electronic shading into a prominent background role behind a rewired girl group swoon, spidery guitar and blissed-out rhythm connecting dreampop to Dreamboats & Petticoats as multitracked backing vocals invoke doo-wop behind Rivas' heartaching coo. It's all rather lovely but intricately detailed in achieving such.
