EDITORS’ NOTES

On their sophomore album, Music Go Music achieve a brilliant fusion of Giorgio Morodor–style disco and ABBA-like Europop. Impressions is much more than a reconfiguration of ‘70s sonic gestures, however. Going beyond homage or parody, the trio infuse the album’s songs with a mystical sort of eroticism that suggests Boogie Nights as scripted by St. Teresa of Avila. Much credit goes to Gala Bell’s dreamy yet compelling vocals, as well as the group’s collective flair for melody and dynamics. The throb and tingle of tracks like “Love Is All I Can Hear,” “Inferno,” and “Never Get Over You” are spurred on by ferocious guitar heroics. “Tell Me How It Feels” and “Part of Me” ride galloping Teutonic beats, while the funky “People All Over the World” and the sleek “Night After Night” glide and simmer with cool sensuality. By the time Bell makes love to God Himself in the closing tune “Shine Down Forever,” Impressions has taken listeners on a wild ride through a fever-drenched disco wonderland too fantastic to believe but too intoxicating to resist.

About Music Go Music

The Los Angeles dance-rock trio Music Go Music (vocalist Gala Bell and multi-instrumentalists Kamer Maza and Torg) craft explosive and eclectic club anthems that rely heavily on the melodic late-'70s progressive pop style of bands like ABBA and ELO, while maintaining a contemporary edge reminiscent of Scissor Sisters, the New Pornographers, and Mika. The band released the critically acclaimed three-song Light of Love single in May 2008, followed by the full-length Reach Out later that August, both on the Secretly Canadian label. Expressions arrived the following year. After taking a long break from releasing music, Music Go Music began releasing singles from their next record in 2013, "Love Is All I Can Hear" in September and "People All Over the World" in November. Their third album, the ABBA meets Fleetwood Mac in a disco Impressions, was released in August of 2014. At the same time the group was working feverishly on a musical titled Active Savage: Rise of Menergy. ~ James Christopher Monger
