- One Room Disco
- One Room Disco (Instrumental)
One Room Disco continues Perfume’s streak of catchy singles. It can almost be called Chocolate Disco part 2 since both songs share many similarities including the repetitive use of the word “disco”. This song really messes with you at first because it starts out rather un-pop like with some strong electo style synths & pads riding along a slightly tribal beat. That doesn’t last very long as the song goes into total pop mode after. You’ll hardly notice that the song runs just over 5 minutes since it just goes full force with few breaks between the verses or chorus sections.
The b-side is 23:30 which has a chilled out, jazzy kind of groove to it. I’m not used to hearing this kind of track from Perfume, but they sound really good over that kind of music. A nice change of pace for sure. What stood out for me was that there were no vocal effects added, so I could actually hear them sing unfiltered. Some cool stuff indeed.
Overall this is an excellent package. If their upcoming album contains more stuff like these songs it’ll be a definite must buy.
