Amoeba Review

09/09/2013

With Apar, Spanish dance band Delorean make the same leap that their spiritual kin in M83 made with recent albums, creating pop that's meant to inspire and not just entertain. From the get-go, the uplifting "Spirit" shows they've got more on their minds than just the dancefloor, though they do make plenty of time for that, on tracks like the buoyant and rather ironically titled "Destitute Time," which is rich with smile-inducing beats and spacey riffs. At times, as on the song "Dominion," Delorean sound a bit like the soundtrack to Cirque du soleil—however, their new age ambitions pay off on beautiful songs like "Unhold," whose digitally skewed female vocals and grandiosity suggest a dancier Cocteau Twins, while "You Know It's Right" has a moving pulse that brings back memories of Vangelis' "Chariots of Fire." Even chillwave bros have to grow up someday; thankfully, on Apar, they do so gracefully.
