Tahiti 80 - Bang! EP

Download from eMusic for US$ 4.95.

On Bang, Tahiti 80's new EP, the Parisian indie-pop mainstays venture into new territory. The dynamic title track "Bang" is classic Tahiti, with its sweeping chorus, baroque synths and the signature voice of Xavier Boyer. "Piano Theme Park" takes a funky scenic route, with a loping bass, delicate keys and slow groove reminiscent of a dub lounge party. "Call Up" finds the band combining epic dynamics with darker lyrics, dirty guitars, and a bit of late-period New Order gravitas. But in keeping with tradition, the band never forgets to have fun, experimenting with Caribean rhythms a la 10cc ("Middle of Nowhere") and revisiting Italo and late '80s acid house on "Whatever."

Tahiti 80 has been around in various incarnations since the early '90s. They've played with Oasis back in the day, and toured with Of Montreal. With Bang, the band has created a snapshot of where they are today; creatively and personally. "Divorce and separation is definitely a major theme, and that's what I'm experiencing  right now," explains Xavier. "I guess Bang is a way of seeing this situation through a positive angle. Musically it's pretty eclectic and that's what EP's are for. It's ok to surprise the listener, whereas for an album people seem to expect something more concise."
