More than soaring pop

‘My body is a dancefloor,’ sings Sónia Tavares on the galloping pop-hit ‘Clinic Hope’. Joyous, nostalgic and cinematic by turns, if you don’t play the keyboard solo on repeat while smiling stupidly to yourself then you’re dead inside. Having collaborated with Brian Eno, there’s more to this massive Portuguese outfit than soaring pop numbers though. ‘Love Without Violins’ is pure sex with synths.
