Today’s tip from Tuska cleverly combines that jolly synth-pop which has been so well-received in recent years with just a hint of driving psychedelia as popularised by Temples and Syd Arthur.

But where those bands might lose themselves in minutes of reverbed guitar noodling, ‘We Could Be Alone‘ wears its lightness well – candyfloss synths abound, the drums are unashamedly electronic-sounding, and the vocals are flightly, falsettoed things.

There’s more than a hint of Flaming Lips in there as well – this Brighton duo clearly have a decent psych record collection, and combined with their breezy seaside demeanour it makes for a very pleasant rollercoaster ride indeed.
