Last Chance Disco comprises 11 songs ranging from the short and furious to the broad and uplifting. 'Iggy' and 'Thing' are sonic ink-blots: primal and violent, while 'Nico' is as strange and beguiling as the Velvet Underground singer herself. 'Om Konz' – a tribute to Olivier Messiaien and The YeahYeahYeahs - begins as a post-punk pogo and ends in a psychedelic mess, while 'Deckchair' has all the space of E.S.G. before descending into grindcore. This music is raw optimism - post-jazz, post-everything.
