Wildcard (week 7):
Stats – The Family Business

15 February, London sextet Stats release their debut album Other Peopleโ€™s Lives. The record is inspired by the likes of Roxy Music, Talking Heads and LCD Soundsystem. A month ago, I already recommended the single Lose It off the long-player.

Now, amid increasing media attention, the band are back with an even stronger teaser. The Family Business is an energetic pop song with a driving 80โ€™s influenced drum pattern, presumably originating from the same computer as the rhythm underlying a-haโ€™s Take On Me.

Stats have a way with catchy tunes, not in the least because frontman Ed Seedย  was part of La Roux earlier, and played guitar and keys in Dua Lipaโ€™s band. With his new musical project, heโ€™s about to reach the same heights. As a first step in this direction, Statsโ€™s new single The Family Business is this weekโ€™s Carte Blanche Music Wildcard, meaning itโ€™ll feature here prominently until next Wednesday!

In the Wildcards 2019 playlist you can find all of this yearโ€™s Carte Blanche Music Wildcards so far.
