Pet Shop Boys –  Vocal (single)

Following on from Axis released in May, The Pet Shop Boys release Vocal from their upcoming album Electric (due out July 15th 2013).

Vocal sees The Pet Shop Boys hit the dance floor with a new sense of gusto. Nowadays it is rare for a song and a video to connect but with its rave tinged production and old skool video footage the Pet Shop Boys manage to do so to great effect.

Vocal also finds The Pet Shop Boys at their wittiest, lyrical best, with the following couplet: “I like the singer, He’s lonely and strange Every track has a vocal, And that makes a change” Its as if they know my own personal aversion to early dance music without vocals.

Will Stuart Price do for The Pet Shop Boys what he did for Madonna? The last time The Pet Shop Boys topped the official charts was in 1988 with Heart and the last time they reached the official charts top 10 was in 2006 with I’m With Stupid, whilst Vocal may not restore Pet Shop Boys to the higher echelons of the chart, however, it is a welcome return to the dance floor
