Dangerwank ‘Your Card Has Been Declined’ (Salmon Universe)

The anonymous and un-Googleable Dangerwank could be anyone: Banksy, Burial, Shergar. However, the modern media motifs are instantly recognisable, with nods to supermarket self-checkouts, hot desking and internet memes. This cheery electropop is like Ulrich Schnauss for an Instagram generation, although the web 3.0 glitchiness belies some rather retro references: there’s lashings of MIDI-sax, vocoder vocals, moments of IDM nostalgia and, in ‘Woman Laughing Alone With Salad’, an irresistible hat tip to 1980s Ryuichi Sakamoto. I reckon it’s The Stig.
