The Circuitry Of Life

Boom, back in the game. Everyone involved in Our Iron Lung has been working tirelessly over the past few months launching and establishing Faux, an online and print arts, music, film and culture magazine running in various ad-funded regional editions. If you haven't already, get the skinny here.

It's been a while since I've written about anything quite as pop as Jett Valentine, but this is pretty brilliant stuff. Coming alongside a super remix from Mirrors, this under 3-minute long piece of piano-led pop is vaguely reminiscent of Luke Leighfield's greater moments. Crushing a stomping chorus in behind simple piano lines, Jett executes some self control in creating strong structure within Outlaws which, ultimately, pays off. Both tracks are available to stream or download thanks to Soundcloud. Thoughts?
