The Gift – Clinic Hope (La Folie Records) 
The Gift - Clinic Hope

Release Date: Out Now

I don’t get enough music from Portugal so it’s a pleasant surprise to get a tune from the superbly talented combo The Gift, hailing all the way from Alcobaca. New single ‘Clinic Hope’ is out now and it kicks hard from the word go with the kind of garage-punk drumming that soon morphs in to a pulsing electro beat to create a nice bed for the synths to bounce on like a hyped up 3-year-old at 3.00am on Christmas Day. The stylish vocals are pitched somewhere between Moloko, Florence + The Machine and Kimbra but oh those synths just keep jumping and pinging like a French disco in the 70s as the song hurtles uncontrollably towards some glorious inevitability. This is the kind of song you need to strap yourself on to and just light the touch paper, let it take you where it wants you to. Trust in the song.

Live Dates:

28th January – Inverfest @ Teatro Circo Price, Madrid
