Lemonade album review

Free-flowing, dreamy dance record that is strides away from their old material

3/5
Four years have passed since Lemonade unleashed their eponymous debut LP. In that time they’ve been squeezing in recording wherever possible, be that in their rehearsal space (the basement of a former Catholic school), or while on tour, and the result is surprisingly consistent.

Here the Brooklyn trio have created a free-flowing, dreamy dance record that is strides away from their old material – especially when compared to their erratic club hit ‘Bliss Out’, which had so many instrumental layers it was like Animal Collective exploded in a rave.

Although the Delphic-esque track ‘Ice Water’ hints at their manic tendencies with its drum’n’bass build-up, and ‘Big Changes’ channels Chicago house synths, overall the album follows the shape of single ‘Softkiss’, which offers a tumble of minimal beats and echoing sighs.

Add frontman Callan Clendenin’s delicate, Alexis Taylor-style vocals and you have a shimmering, feelgood collection of songs to daydream to.
