Pet Shop Boys

Listening to PSB’s new album “Hotspot” is like winding back the clock to the 80s. Neil Tennant’s nasal, almost tuneless drawl and the electro-pop synths were the backdrop to that wonderful decade of big hair and shoulderpads. On Hotspot, their 14th album, they’ve stuck to what they do best – decamping to Berlin and writing some decent pop songs. The results do not reach the heights of 80s bangers like West End Girls and It’s a Sin, but there is quality with “Burning the Heather” and “Monkey Business”.
