Review: Wrapped in Air by True

Wrapped in Air by TrueSwiss electronica duo True finally got a full-length album out, and Wrapped in Air does not disappoint. Granted, it’s not an album that attempts to make an impact upon entry – it probably took me until half the album to realize that there will not be a moment when the record “kicks in”, so to speak. But scattered across its ten tracks are a glittery yet sensible distillation of the posh side of 80s synth pop, with a sensibility that suggests an act that’s not stuck in time, nor bent on mining nostalgia for quick hits. What the album doesn’t have in urgency, it has in immersion: the ten tracks flow almost seamlessly, distinct enough to suggest phases but unified enough to hint at a cohesive whole. Frankly, it’s not what I expected – maybe I came in expecting something more suited for the club, or maybe it’s just my mindset of late – but it is, seemingly, what we need. [NB] | 4/5
