Stepping briskly between the best of Arc and Man Alive the group deliver a pleasant mass-market funk assault, a polite fusion of the danceable and the populist. They are, you suspect, just getting started...
Everything Everything have felt the pop landscape rumble beneath their feet. When their debut, Man Alive, came out in 2010 their fusion of glitchy R&B and white funk seemed daring and eclectic – an indie-urban love-in that dared not speak its name. Since then, there has been a parade of artists tapping the same influences (Coldplay went day-glo pop, Beyoncé, as per her Major Lazer hook-up, turned ‘indie’). In other words, what once was niche is now virulently mainstream.
