Ayer - Circle Down 



I would first like to point out that the first 10 seconds of this song sound like a late 80s Michael Jackson song. So, props for that Ayer. Secondly, it has to be said that the androgynous vocal is making quite a niche for itself in indie music (thank you Rhye, Electric Guest, etc.), and I love it. Ayer manages to sing about nonsense ("It is a chance to prowl, time to circle down"....), and sell it completely because of that breathy, one degree cooler than the Bee-gees vocal. Overall, the 80s sound is present all over this track, from the electric keys to the happy-go-lucky synths. Definitely into it.
