Belfast duo New Portals follow up, ‘Skyline’, and ‘Do It Right’, with new track ‘Groove Boy’.
‘Groove Boy’ has been described by The Guardian (who incidentally made them their band of the week last Friday):
“one of the finest R&B-tinged male-female duos we’ve heard since AlunaGeorge… ‘Groove Boy’ is crystalline pop with a divine melody, a keyboard pattern that gives “twinkling” a good name, and celestial sighs from Mrs Aicken that make Aluna Francis sound like Aretha Franklin. The milieu is the discotheque but the mood is dolorous. Immaculate use of finger-clicks, too.”
Check out the video, which was released on 30 March.
