We, in this generation, entomb our one-hit wonders in memes, giving them new life beyond the hollow rememberings available to past eras. And so nine years after Shooting Stars, two years after its memetic revival, Bag Raiders are back to cement their spot in the present.
The bad news? There’s no Shooting Stars Pt. II Redux here.
The good news? The Sydney duo have compiled a record of nu-disco that breathes vivid life back into the genre. Twelve exquisite tracks prove that Horizons is no rush job to capitalise on hype, but carefully formed over the past few years of releases. Constantly delightful, Horizons shows Bag Raiders have lots left to give.
Horizons by Bag Raiders is out September 6 via Island/Universal.
