That Danish electronic pop quartet When Saints Go Machine have been compared to everyone from Caribou to Erasure to Baths (and their vocalist Nikolaj Vonsild to such luminaries as Anthony Hegarty, David Thomas Broughton and Arthur Russell) should give you a hint of their quality. Theirs is a slanted, grown-up variant of pop that comes in many guises across the length of their assured debut album “Konkylie” – and never twice alike. ‘Kelly’ is the most instantly catchy of the bunch – a pulsing, floor-filling earworm that could be a lost 1980s chart topper. The Shlohmo remix strips away the hook and adds dubstep synth washes, trills of brass and acoustic guitar strums. Catch the original live in London down at the CAMP Basement on September 28th.
