Despite what their name might imply, this Spanish indie-electro quartet has no desire to dwell on ‘80s retro-chic. And despite an unfair number of comparisons to Animal Collective… okay, so maybe some of those are deserved. But Delorean still managed to make one of the most beautifully summery records of the year in Subiza — and if you spend time trying to label it, you’ll only tire yourself out. Bouncy synth loops and driving drums mesh into helplessly danceable songs that effortlessly ebb and flow amongst each other. Sure, they embrace the upbeat abandon of Balearic Beat—but Delorean is just as likely to toy with genre boundaries as it is to abide by them. In short: prepare to dance. With Lemonade, Noddy.
