‘Edge of Cool’ is the wonderfully weird new single from Life Aquatic Band
Location: Sheffield, UK
FFO: Talking Heads, LCD Soundsystem
Life Aquatic Band or L.A.B have their unique brand of electronic-indie down to an tee. Their music is flavoured with a blend of funk, surf, jazz and disco, creating for a diverse and eclectic sound. While it harks back to the likes of Talking Heads and LCD Soundsystem, it very much has its own distinct niche.
‘Edge of Cool’ is the outfits latest single and it exemplifies this. It is predominantly a cocktail of indie and dance and oozes with savvy grooves and dance-able hooks. Towards the end the track descends into a mess of trumpets and drums (in a good way) but before then remains a restrained and textured piece of appetising indie.
