Though accompanied here by a vague conceptual promo (she needs to work on that golf swing), this sonically clinical offering would be best appreciated on a high-end hi-fi, or potent club soundsystem. You’ll get your chance when Portuguese producer Xinobi releases his ‘1975’ album on his own Discotexas label later in the year. Meanwhile, this taster, ‘Mom and Dad’, is all refined space and reverb, a dubbed-up ambient outpouring of electro-pop comprising Duane Eddy-style guitar twang and a crisp bass groove traversing an insistent kick-drum. The plaintive vocal by Margarida Encarnação adds a touch of Iberian seduction to what is a finely crafted studio piece.
