Hot on the heels of their scorching track “Young Ones”, unveiled at the end of 2014, comes a storming EP which will surely consolidate Formation’s place as one of the most vital and exciting new talents around today.

A physical only white label release last summer first heralded the arrival of the South London twin brothers, a blinding mix of Dinosaur L, vintage ESG and early DFA that they are quite clearly now streamlining and honing to sleek, seamless perfection on this, their debut EP. Title track “Young Ones” is a belting clarion call to the dancefloor, a vigorous, percussive workout which conjures the ghosts of punk funk greats such as Liquid Liquid and The Rapture. The dreamy “Take it All Away” and hypnotic “No Great Change” however, mark a surprising change of pace, slowing down the tempo and weaving a gorgeous, melancholy spell over the listener.

But it is with the closer “Back Then” that Formation flex the sheer diversity of their influences. An infectious, elastic track, it twins the rhythmic drive of the snare with warm organ tones, harking back to the pulsating roots of Northern Soul while also looking defiantly forward, transcending an array of genres while still maintaining their own very distinct identity.
