With what appears to be the greatest single of 2009*, Saint Etienne has returned to the dancefloor with “Method of Modern Love,” the Richard X-produced lead single from their upcoming compilation album, London Conversations: The Best of Saint Etienne. The group has been dangling song samples in front of their fans’ salivating faces for weeks now, but only now we can finally experience the full release.
That should have been worded differently.
*As of today.
Anywho, here are just some of the features of this track, which can be officially dubbed as “brillz”:
+ A proper ‘disco beat.’
+ Echoey bits.
+ The line “shot with a bolt of blue,” which may very well stem from classic New-wave favorite, New Order‘s “Bizarre Love Triangle.”
+ Sounds a bit like Kylie‘s “The One” (otherwise known as Perfection.)
+ A solid middle eight, featuring the greatest spell-out of “love” since Ashlee Simpson‘s “L.O.V.E.”
