For such a concise discography, the history of one of EDM's greatest cult duos has been writ plenty large. 'Summer Calling'. 'Beautiful Things'. Two tracks, two successive years, two conclusive anthems and ones that masterminded the rocking of countless club floors. That was followed by a recorded-but-never-released long-player, band hiatus, a parting of ways and finally, in 2011, the reunion. All of which has led to this point: the release of Andain's first official album...When the demands of their individual careers proved too great, it seemed to spell a premature finale for one of dance music's most gifted acts. But through 'You Once Told Me' fate has intervened. Songstress Mavie Marcos and production wunderkind Josh Gabriel (Gabriel & Dresden) are finally set to deliver their first full-length track collection.Opening the album's account is their most recent single. Resonating with deep, spacious bass, 'Turn Up The Sound's refined Indian-inspired percussive instrumentation backs Mavie's loud-and-clear call to action. Setting a more chilled, Café del Mar-ish tone, 'Like' has an aching, lyrical fragility that's picked out, to beautiful effect, by Gabriel's slo-mo beats and enrapturing string sections. If 'Like' is the album's Café del Mar moment, then 'Forget Your Face' is its Café de Noir. Josh marries a filtered, panned omnipresent ticking clock with sharply programmed, snapping break-beats to create a darker, swirling miasma-ish atmosphere. Sutured by Mavie's intoxicating, indie-edged vocal haunt, it gives another diverse hue to the album.
