Fronted by the enigmatic Daisy Finetto, Mausi are a four piece who reside in London. Originally channelling indie rock, the outfit have gone against the grain and delved into the embracing and maniacal world of frizzy pop and vibrant electro beats; previous efforts "Move" and "Body Language" firmly cement such a divergent shift in style and it works exceptionally well.

"My Friend Has A Swimming Pool" as a title sounds enticingly boastful, childish in fact. This summer anthem lathers you in quirky electro-pop nostalgia. Avec Sans meets Pony Pony Run Run, with an undulating slice of Metronomy's "The English Riviera". The fact Mausi clearly socialise in circles where a pool is something that symbolises successful middle class suburbia leaves us a little jealous. Where was our invite? Their latest single is a superfluous mix of hazy piano keys, Balearic dance hooks and neon electronica. Crucially it still feels like pop and that is what makes this track so fun. Splashing around rather haphazardly in eighties revelry and stop-start sound manoeuvres "My Friend Has A Swimming Pool" is the perfect accompaniment to debaucherous evenings. Now, where is that paddling pool we put in the garden shed?...
