German electro duo Digitalism set the world of dance music alight back in 2007 with their debut Idealism. However, the intervening years have been quiet but they have signaled their return with ‘2 Hearts’, the first single from their forthcoming second album, I Love You, Dude.
Their rationale with ‘2 Hearts’ remains pretty straightforward; big beats, big choruses and big riffs. It is energetic synth rock at it best, although it must be said it all sounds very Klaxons-esque, circa Myths of the Near Future. A very welcome and overdue return timed perfectly for the festival season, it is good to have ’em back.
‘2 Hearts’ is released on 13 June via V2/Cooperative Music w/ the album expected soon after.
