Dreht sich durch den 80er Pop. Sexy Basslines, Synthie-Gewiggel und ein Karaoke Songbook volle verlorener Hits wie von The Smiths, Spandau Ballet, The Cure, The Cars & DEVO.
Part Time's sophomoric effort PDA picks up from where 2011's What Would You Say? debut left us: starry-eyed, sugarrushed and eager for another night drive. David Speck, the creative mind behind the project has an undeniable ear for writing pop songs that feel steeped in a perpetual state of teenage romance. Each track on PDA boasts a timeless, strangely familiar melody - cushioned by achingly perfect chord progressions that fall precisely into place, and all produced in a style befitting of its playfully referential nature. Part Time can almost feel like catching a glimpse into Speck's own private karaoke booth as he croons, wails and whispers through each song, dressed in various thrift-store costume pieces and framed by broken sets of mood lighting. This is a quality reflected in Speck's penchant for churning out handheld/D.I.Y. music videos at a rate which nearly rivals his prolific songwriting output. These goofy, spoof-like visual accompaniments serve to enhance the project's aesthetic sensibilities, pushing its postmodern irreverence to fun new heights. In saying that,PDA is still an undeniably fun record, and a colorful pastiche that cycles through Speck's choice 80s pop tropes, guitar jangle, keytar leads, sexy basslines, fried synth wiggles and a karaoke songbook chock full of lost hits by The Smiths, The Cure, The Cars & DEVO.
