Band Of Gold are certainly a group who live up to their name. Their 2016 debut album won the Nordic Music Prize for Best Album, beating the likes of Bjork and Jenny Hval, and drew media praise from the likes of Q, Notion and Wonderland magazine. This single, taken from their upcoming LP Where’s The Magic is similarly drenched in synths and seductive lyrics. The bass may seem to borrow too heavily from ‘Under Pressure’, but the rest of the sourcing is done with more subtlety so that the song just sounds New Wave.  ‘I Wanna Dance With You Again’ is a track that would be acceptable in the eighties, but that still sounds futuristic today.
