We love Pigeon. Simple as that. The Brisbane five piece consisting of Luke, Aaron, Danny, Chris and Nick have already received much praise for their ability to produce a style of electro dance-pop that is unmistakably Australian. It is rousing and experimental, almost calamitous in places but never overdone. The band join a formidable list of acts from 'Down Under' (Cut Copy, San Cisco, Pnau, Gold Fields) as they attempt to collide such discordant, opposing genre complexities into one funnelled vein of noise. Their latest cut "Encounters" is another creative step forward in terms of coercing each band member's style into a vociferous beast of a track; decorous synthesised up-drafts, gilded keys and the distingué presence of Germanic tech-board particularities fuel this disco-singed romper. For us, Pigeon are akin to Fenech-Soler in their application and with the way they extract sounds with intended purpose. Between such punchy nineties infused choruses Pigeon manipulate tempos, unleash brief M83-esque saxophone chants and stream neon vocals to give their latest single a multi-dimensional vastness. "Encounters" is an enjoyable track that bears all the hallmarks of musicians who are happiest when making masterpieces together.
