US duo PLOY trend in such vividly British neo-R&B that you find yourself wondering as to how they’re not from London each and every time they deign to unveil another of their idiosyncratic, dynamic and at times distinctly gritty synth-pop gambits. When compared with the otherwise blithe X I X, Triumph makes for a darker, indeed more textured and somehow introspective listen, although both can most certainly be deemed just that – feats of earwormy wonder. “I wanna know what makes you feel/ I wanna know what makes you talk/ I wanna know what makes you real/ And not just a second thought” is how this one flows, and PLOY certainly have their stratagem – that which gets listeners talking and heads turning – honed to a fine T.
