‘Peppermint’ has been chopped from Bashmore’s as-yet-untitled 2014 album, and certainly if the whole record ends up taking on a similar sound we’ll be looking at something of a more mature take on Disclosure’s wide-eyed retro pop house. The track might feature regular-collaborator Ware, but she doesn’t take the lead, Bashmore makes sure that you know you’re listening to a dance track first and foremost, and Ware’s coos are used simply as the icing on the cake.
Expect to hear a lot more of this track in the next few weeks, and we’ll update with more news on the album as soon as it surfaces. Bashmore has also revealed a brief U.K. tour – you can check the dates below.
