Phenomenal Handclap Band return in the New Year with their second album for Tummy Touch - Form & Control - an ambitious work which takes their clever fusion of international psych, soul, and cosmic disco a bold step forward.

The band - or self-styled collective - broke through in 2009 with their debut single 15 To 20, a club hit both in America and Europe that set the scene for a self-titled debut album later that year.

Their sound and style had roots in New York and San Francisco, San Paulo and London, some physical and others more spiritual. But imagine a scenario where Curtis Mayfield and Deee-Lite threw a Nu-Yorican party with Afro-beat, Italo-disco, Turkish psych, '70s West Coast rock and Boney M also on the decks. Kaleidoscopic or what? But when Form & Control hits your deck or laptop, you need to reconfigure expectations.

Imagine The Human League, MGMT, Fleetwood Mac, Black Devil Disco Club, Justice, Hercules & Love Affair, Blondie and The Steve Miller Band produced by Mike Chapman at London's legendary RAK Studios, home of prime slices of '70s glam, soul and disco. In other words, a sleek and shimmering alternative to the first album's spicier mutant stew, but just as groovy.
