Atomic, When Saints Go Machine.

Atomic, When Saints Go Machine.

There’s an inimitable off-kilt pop dexterity to all that Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild’s When Saints Go Machine contrive to fabric, and no longer is Iodine merely ‘a chemical element with symbol I and atomic number 53′ but instead also a massive splash from the Danes’ forthcoming third, Infinity Pool. It’s a record which, released in conjunction with EMI, may see the Scandinavian eccentrics enter into a more widespread cognisance and along with the Killer Mike-featuring Love And Respect, Iodine is an incontrovertible highlight that serves as a nebulous billow of avant-garde suavity pumped out of the experimental and into an all the more mainstream aesthetic – its chorus a deferential, if perhaps indirect homage to Kate Bush’s inexhaustible Running Up That Hill. And tirelessly excellent this one is, as well.

Infinity Pool is released May 20th on EMI / !K7.
