Milan based Heels Of Love is made up of Luca Saponaro (from Krautrock-Disco hybrids The Love Supreme) and Michele Tessadri (AKA Fratelli Riviera). The pair of them create incredible 80's-tinged, earthy, synthesized music with healthy dose of real instrumentation. After the much praised single 'Chain Gang' on Nang last year, and some key releases on Mad On The Moon and Under The Shade labels, we are pleased to welcome The Heels of Love back for their first album and second release on Nang this July.
After the syncopated clap rhythms and dubbed out keyboards of album opener 'Cosmo', the album takes you on a ride through classic grooves reinvigorated with The Heels' trademark sound, spaced out synths riffs, and the occasional downright-dirty bass line. Leading through the up-tempo vocal of Max Essa on 'Chain Gang,' you reach the woozy halftime jams in 'Blue Gitanes,' onto the stark funk of Dark Esquire's vocal featuring on 'The Beat,' finishing up on the classy synth joint 'Flight 707.'
