1990 and the voice of Propaganda with the lead single off her solo album, “Love: And A Million Things.”
Rather light and poppy this was produced by Pascal Gabriel and included a host of well respected session musicians. Funky house via synth pop, more than edgy industrial that Propaganda were probably expecting, the 12″ does have some nice sounds on it. “Strangelove” by Depeche Mode springs to mind.
B-side “Whisper” could be Propaganda with a phatt synth bass and heavy electronic percussion , a little “Dr. Mabuse” in places with the half spoken lyrics and sampled guitars. Produced with co-writer John Uriel (from synth band Empire)
Both title tracks start off a bit crispy in the first minute but bear with it and it smooths out.
