Following her ʻFlowerheadʼ single which was backed with a hugely successful Spencer Parker remix, Swedenʼs La Fleur returns to her own fledgling Power Plant imprint for its third release, ʻEavesdropperʼ. Strong, melodic and timeless house music paired with stunning artwork, Power Plantʼs remit is a simple but attractive one. The beautiful images of Olaf Hajek, Wilfried Pordiech Sätty and now Hans Arnold provide a striking outer to a core that, in just two releases, is already essential for many a house fan. Former dancer Sanna La Fleur, label boss and the artist in question for the labelʼs third 12”, employs a variety of sunny major key chords and whispering female vocals on title cut ʻEavesdropperʼto great ends.
Spacious and gentle yet undeniably propulsive ʻEavesdropperʼ is an infectious skipping groove underpinned with nagging bass. The flipside cut ʻTjuvlyssnerskanʼ takes its name from the Swedish feminine noun for ʻEavesdropperʼ yet reverses the gender of the vocals of its counterpart. Added dusty loops, poignant pianos and another weighty bass create a piece of house that’s much more than the sum of its parts. Out 12th April, have a listen below.
