Approved: Death Team – Jump

Death Team

First approved almost exactly a year ago, it’s worth jumping back into the world of Death Team once again. Having gone quite for a few months, they returned last week with new single ‘Jump’. And thankfully, none of the over-the-top, infectious energy that originally made them interesting has yet dissipated.

The track is a punishing, ultra-neon explosion of 90s piano house riffs and handclaps, topped off with so many quotable lyrics that even after listening to the track fifteen times in a row, I’m still cursing myself that I can’t keep enough of them in my head.

“I’m CEO baby, and you’re not even hired” is one. “I wanna fuck, you wanna use the wifi” is another. “I’m having tea, and you’re a fucking loser” is another. And… fuck! Here comes listen number sixteen.
