MODEL 86 ‘Is MODEL 86 Dreaming of Being a Butterfly or is a Butterfly Dreaming of Being MODEL 86?’ (Super Generic)

Another anonymous dance act rolls off the conveyor belt, but MODEL 86 does the whole automaton schtick very well. ‘I Don’t Wanna Go’ is like a firework display of pop hooks and arpeggios, with one insistent, monotone vocal holding everything together (which is either hypnotic or annoying, depending on how much you focus on it). The hyperreal excesses of poptimism are clearly in evidence as an influence throughout, though tracks such as ‘Trill’ and ‘Things Go Bad’ are more eccentric and less cloying than said movement, which can only be a good thing.
