It’s with a scrunched up look of squinty disbelief we’re today gazing out the agape window, for it would appear that summer has descended at long last. Spring became an all but spectral nonexistence, though all is swiftly forgotten as the sun sears the previously ever-present blanket of monochromic cloud to allow for this unmistakably estival shimmer from Brooklyn troupe Selebrities to beam on in. Its artwork opaquely depicting that same rakish Sex On The Beach vibe T-Spoon once scooped, there’s a wistful quality to Temporary Touch as Pornography guitars combine with Maria Usbeck’s affected cooing – all of which could perhaps make it a better fit for that woebegone point at which the time of the season for romp and frivolity dissipates, the skies dim and winter begins. Yet irrespective of timing, as Maria chimes: “You make me feel adored again” all that passion past is of course once more rekindled.
