Spring solstice was the other day, and the French boys from Point Point are already thinking about summer. Honestly, I don't blame them. However, I think I'm developing some seasonal allergies. I'm allergic to seasons that require a heap of air conditioning, and it's starting to get hot in Los Angeles.
"True Summer" starts things off with an off-kilter synth, which starts to wind up until the percussion comes in. And when the kick drums start, along with what's presumably a pitched sample of a wooden block, with a real nice click to it, you know you're in for a treat. But of course it doesn't stop there. That would be too boring, and definitely a little underwhelming for a Point Point tune.
The song really starts to pick up around the 1:55 mark, but the progressive nature of the track is what won me over. That and the distorted bass that comes in around that point.
"True Summer" may be a bit different from their past releases, but it still has the modern, avant-garde appeal they have become so well known for.
