Just when I don’t think these guys can get better, they do.
On paper the odds would seem against them, but ‘Oops’ is proof that LBE have suavely transitioned from the old gentleman’s club to new wave electro pop – and they’ve annoyingly made the conversion sound easy.
For me Oops is LBE positioning a strong foothold towards more anthemic tunes, giving fans infectious catchy lyrics to sing-a-long to – 2019’s festival season will see this four-piece soar. And, musically the single rises and punches in exactly the right places – infectious disco beats are combined with layered waves of snyth which contemporise this electro-eighties banger. There’s nothing ‘Oops’ about this.
