L-SPACE

Single: I Never Knew and Tigers In The Street

Following the relatively quickfire release of their 2018 debut Kipple Arcadia, and this year’s Music For Megastructures, you’d think that L-Space would have a job on their hands finding new ideas and inspiration. Not so. Their next album isn’t due out until April 2020, but L-Space are back already with a taster double A-side single, featuring two retro futuristic tracks ‘I Never Knew’ and ‘Tigers In The Street’.

These tracks, written in Normandy, France, with producer James Sanger (Keane, U2, Annie Lennox), are still L-space tracks through and through, but they’re reined in, their previous inclination to rawer edges and flightier fancies diminished.

Kipple Arcadia was full of tickly and glitchy little experimental pop songs and monolithic slabs of sound (Backup Baby was top of my earworm list for months) while Music For Megastructures was sprawling, nervy and intricate to the extreme. With this new release, things are simpler. If these tracks are an indication of their eventual surroundings in the new album, perhaps this will be the one where L-Space distill their sound into its most direct pop form yet.
