Fittingly for a collection whose title track takes inspiration from Philippe Petit’s heart-stopping 1974 high wire walk between the twin towers of New York’s World Trade Centre, Floodlights’ second album feels gently daring. The haunted synths of John Alexander and Mat “Pulselovers” Handley provide a spectral framework for the graceful sax melodies of Harriet Lisa, whose heartbreaking violin weaves through standout track ‘Can I Come Back’, the tale of a marooned astronaut drifting hopelessly and silently into space. Exquisite.
