Dick Dent Goes Pop.
The sound of these four pop covers, that shine of an eternal light, seems to come from a distant place in our conscience. Dick Dent can transform them in a bizarre post-punk jumble, with clear recalls to the most visionary synth-pop.
In each one of them their brightness is left untouched, and Dick makes us see his love for these evergreen songs, that here remain suspended in a sort of karaoke, almost ghostly, where the elements that this Bristol artist knows better can interact: drum machines and analogue synths joined to an enormous amount of vocal echoes.
A good way to listen song covers reinterpreted with a personal touch, which gives the occasion to go and listen to the first songs from the repertoire of such an interesting artist.
