Streaming over on Line Of Best Fit, (Track Of The Day) Boredom make this oscillating machine funk, inspired by obscure polish disco, Japanese new wave and Paradise garage mixes coming together in these punked up disco-esque tracks, that remind me of ESG, Talking Heads or some of the early DFA releases. Geometry is out on Melodic 30th September
It’s the result of two minds bonding over music despite being miles apart. Cook is based in Amsterdam while Moss lives in Salford.
“We’ve been emailing each other tunes we liked for years,” explains Cook. “The common thread was always real musicianship woven into electronic, danceable tunes… that hint of a human being in there making mistakes that computers don’t.” Boredom began with recording in Salford and was finished up in Amsterdam.
The fusing of two minds across borders had clearly worked well on this impressive debut single. “Geometry” is an accomplished piece of twisted disco with enough darkness to get the mind thinking and enough thrust to get the feet moving. We’re already hankering for more.
Boredom’s debut single “Geometry” / “Turn Your Head” (12″ and digital format – including Panthera Krause and Sandrow M remixes) is released on 30 September via Melodic Records. Pre-order now.
