Allan Lumba has a new project out called Third World Summer. And it’s a noticeable departure from the accessible, guitar-pop he refined via one-man band, Multo.
On the new single, “Displaced Voices,” Allan snatches compositional tricks from Balearic pop instead of going for guitar-based stuff. He mixes seaside music with hazy vocal loops, minimalist electro and ambient sonics. Based on the one-minute preview, it does sound like a cross between Caribou and Achillea: liquid soundscapes submerged in club-ready delight, one that’s actually perfect for dancing when nobody’s around to watch.
