SHAMELESS – GROOVE ARMADA

Groove Armada featuring Bryan Ferry? Badass – not to mention one of the better artist collaborations I’ve encountered (right up there with the Chemical Brothers & Emily Haines). Ferry, as I’ve heard some listeners describe, was in his prime thought to be the James Bond of the music industry (with his sultry, resonant voice going down like a fine martini – shaken, not stirred). I love this idea of Ferry as some super-spy, even more in the context of modern, electronic music. Groove Armada infuses “Shameless” with an hypnotic, electronic pulse driven by reverbs and smooth synth work. This paired down single is simply gorgeous in its simplicity and a well executed track by both parties.
