So I was trawling through YouTube the other day when I came across the video for Mylo's recent take on Freeform Five's "No More Conversations." It's a fantastic dance pop track; the synth line purrs amidst Tamara Barnett-Herrin's airy vocals, while a jumpy beat keeps things lively. Fittingly, I first heard of Freeform through their rework of "Muscle Car" off of Mylo's excellent album Destroy Rock & Roll. Both artists blur the line between remixing and the traditional band setup (Freeform centers around producer Anu Pillai, while Mylo sometimes tours with a full band), and I think that's pretty neat. They're both playing dates across the pond over the next couple months, and hopefully new albums won't be far off.
