Following Acid Jazz's acquisition of X-Press 2's catalogue and their early works being added to streaming sites, the UK house duo return with a second new single from this latest chapter in their career. For the last three decades, they have been serving up a broad spectrum of music that ranges from catchy and anthemic to more dark and moody via the sounds of their last single ‘You Know (Everybody)’.
They won an Ivor Novello Award for ‘Lazy’ featuring David Byrne and have had their tunes synced by fashion house Givenchy, but never have they stopped evolving, as four studio albums have shown.
They are in form again here with 'Muse', which finds the pair sinking into deep, introverted house grooves. The dusty, scruffy drums drag like a heavy heart beneath wistful vocal sounds up top that convey real emotional pain. Subtle melodies rise up through the mix to bring a sense of hope to the tracks.
