Sunsetpeople - Orion

It’s no single of the year, but Get Physical rides again with this 12″, an incredibly subtle and involving joint that makes it mark by leaving no trace at all. The title track is all moody synth pads, longing for a Japanese vacation, resting comfortably with a sedate drum pattern that propels the production forward. The “Salty Dog” B-side is more ebullient, but doesn’t do much to establish itself outside of a beginning mixture of seagulls and dogs barking. Once that settles firmly into the background, though, we’re greeted with clinical acid basslines and violent synth stabs.
