The ShortListen: Theme Park (no. 314)

London trio unveil joyful new single

The ShortListen: Theme Park (no. 314)

Who? Theme Park

What’s the story? London trio Theme Park were contemporaries of Fryars, Bombay Bicycle Club and Cajun Dance Party, emerging just after those bands and being tipped for great things. Their 2013 self-titled debut didn't quite hit them into the big league but, after three years away, they've returned with a fizzy, effervescent track from their upcoming second record. The whole thing is full of energy, with sparkling tropical acoustic guitars guiding us through the verses before a bubbling synth bass leads us into a huge, falsetto-led chorus. If Alt-J decided to drink a load of Red Bull and let their hair down, this is what they'd sound like. A cracking piece of indie-electro-pop.

For fans of: Mystery Jets, Bombay Bicycle Club, Alt-J

In three words: Fizzing indie-pop
