Level 42 is giving a nod to their past with a new EP entitled Sirens. The six-song album, mixed and produced by John Morales, is firmly rooted in the retro dance format.
“Back in 1980 and 1981 when we started out, we were very much a club band,” bassist Mark King told the audience at a recent gig at Indigo2. “[We played] smaller places than this and all-nighters. We used to put out white labels and people didn’t know who we were and stuff. I just really like that vibe. We’re just bring out stuff now that’s coming full circle.”
Underpinned by King’s signature slap style, Sirens offers up an early ’80s dance vibe complete with layered synths and sweeping violin pads. For a taste of the vibe, check out the band debuting the title track in London:
