In the middle of a pandemic with its own distinctly dystopian feel, Chester-based brothers Steve and Peter Dandy felt driven to create this eclectic collection, emulating the dark, sci-fi soundtracks of their square-eyed youth. So ‘Jump Cut’ boasts skittering beats and Bollywood strings, whereas ‘Undermind’ sounds like Roger Limb wrestling with Portishead. But the unifying feel is tense and cinematic. Never more so than in the concluding ‘Tech Noir’, in which a grizzled John Carpenter flips down his shades and drives stoically away from the smoking ruins of 2020.
