We say

We’ve been bouncing around to this groovy number from French trio Keep On Dancing Inc since it dropped into our inbox. Driven by a pulsating analogue bassline and four-to-the-floor beat, Start Up Nation is an energetic blast of indie disco, all wrapped up in a nostalgic '80s sheen. And yes, it is as cool as it sounds. It’s picked up tastemaker support at Clash, NME, and When The Horn Blows among others, along with a Radio X-Posure playlist add and multiple plays from Jack Saunders at Radio 1. Previous support has come from the Line of Best Fit, Pop Matters, Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer. The Parisian trio are currently readying their debut album Embrace for release later this autumn, which on the evidence of this cool and sophisticated dose of indie-pop is going to be something special.
