Delorean make the kind of music that longs to be played on a warm summer's evening, possibly around a campfire, probably in a gorgeous beach setting.

Subiza is a perfect cinematic dance pop, pure pleasure for you ears.

Opener Stay Close, slowly building tension and a smattering of those odd yelps and vocal tics that peppered the album. It's less of a struggle to enjoy the songs they create and, as Stay Close slides effortlessly along to its joyful conclusion, you're lost in a swathe of keyboards and vocal swirls.

Much of Subiza (named after the island it was recorded on) follows a similar template of chopped up vocal riffs, glistening keyboards and summery melodies. Aware of their strengths, the band never overload the songs with unnecessary instrumentation. The six-minute Real Love is a simple rave-esque piano part, a bouncing beat and layers of vocal interplay that mould themselves around the musical backbone.

Grow introduces a distant guitar, whilst Simple Graces opens with a recurring old-skool hip-hop loop which, relatively speaking, is a bit of a shock. That the song slowly unfolds into another deliriously sunny confection is no great surprise, but it's these touches that stop the album from being too polite.

They may have been doing this for over a decade - this is their fourth album - but the timing of Delorean's rise to prominence is perfect. With alternative dance building up a head of steam thanks to its more famous exponents, there's now a place at the table for a band like Delorean to reap the rewards. Thankfully, with Subiza, they've got the songs to help the process along. All they need now is the perfect summer and they'll be inescapable.

If ever there was a sound to clear the cobwebs and prepare your mind for summer this is it. I don't write many reviews but there aren't many bands like this one. fresh. cool. and necessary. that's all.

nice tight, melodic, mostly up tempo, romantic music. Good vibes, engaging rhythms, and harmonic thrills. Nice ear candy
