Dubstar – Token

In the second half of the β€˜90s, electro-pop band Dubstar scored hits with tunes like Stars, No So Manic Now and – my favourite – Anywhere. Four years after they made their comeback with the album One, they’re about to release a new long-player. Entitled Two (who could’ve guessed?), it will be out on 6 May. All four singles Sarah Blackwood and Chris Wilkie released since One will be on it.

Token is the latest track to be unleashed ahead of the new record. Pet Shop Boys being one of my all-time favourite acts, it truly made my heart jump. The song’s credits prove otherwise, but this could have been a track written by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe. I think long-time Pet Shop Boys collaborator Stephen Hague, who co-produced Token, is to thank for this. I also hear echoes of The Eurythmics’ There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart) in it, by the way.

All in all, this is a great synthpop song that makes me wish it’d be May already.
