Plaid - Scintilli

A retro soundtrack to an ’80s sci-fi romance
Plaid - Scintilli
The long-anticipated seventh studio album from the London duo begins beautifully with piano, violins, xylophones, and plaintive female vocals. It’s not indicative of what’s to come, which is squelchy treacle thick electro, spaceage Latin, Bladerunner shamisen, Jean Michel Jarre synths, Dr Who sound effects and fairytale church bells. They scored the immense anime Tekkon Kinkreet and produce beautiful short films for their own tracks. Here they’ve created a retro cinema soundtrack to an ’80s sci-fi romance. Let filming commence.

7/10
