Japanator Radio played a couple of tracks from Perfume’s new album “Triangle”. Night Flight has the usual complex autotuned vocals, tight drum fills and retro synth work, wrapped up in a nice melody. This is one of their better tracks. My toes are still tapping.

Edge is a bit different. For a start, it’s long — over 8 minutes of that slightly harsh synth sound. It sounds like an old-school “extended mix”, where they make a regular 3- or 4-minute track, and then edit in a few instrumental sections to stretch it out to 8 minutes. It would have been a lot better if they had left it shorter and emphasised the vocal melodies more.
