    They’ve struck a perfect balance between pushing boundaries and making people dance.

    Infinity Pool contains some of the most immediately accessible and infallibly addictive songs that the band have ever produced--the record is full of wonky, glistening pop anthems.

    It's a thoughtful, cleverly composed work that is often quite beautiful--just in a sad way, that's all.

    It’s a deep dive that, while not as accessible as the band’s previous works, proves they’ve chosen experimentation over stagnancy.

    Added to this unlikely musical melting pot is singer is Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild's falsetto, occasionally reminiscent of both Arthur Russell and Antony Hegarty. [Aug 2013, p.107]

    It's a record that lacks the structure and order needed to make it into a cohesive unit, one that can be listened to beginning to end without skipping tracks.

    The record attempts to fuse dance music and complexity, but doesn’t quite reconcile the two; instead, its mindless thrills butt up against impenetrable baths of sound.
