always going to be a difficult follow-up, i like it though! all about the contrast between the stunted, almost early disco-sounding piano riff and the dreamy little sections after the vocal part when it gets a bit more expansive

Peggy is the cover star of ES magazine (the London Evening Standard* weekly mag) this week.
*free newspaper, currently edited by former Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne. Basically dedicated now to trolling Theresa May but has some decent-ish arts coverage too

squiggly acid melodies under piano chords are my kink

I'm putting together my 2018 mix and still don't get It Makes You Forget (Itgehane) - it just sounds vaguely pleasant but inconsequential.
Can anyone give me a way in here? What is it that people love about this track so much?

I also liked-liked not loved-loved the track until I finally heard it out, there’s something very... comforting and vibesy about it on the dancefloor, and the evident abundant happiness it provokes in people. It’s that as much as anything else that makes it classic.
Other tracks which had a similar dynamic for me are Kyla’s “Do You Mind” and Todd Terje’s “Inspector Norse”, both of which I thought were great on first contact but never imagined they would be massive anthems that were also personally important to me - but the latter personal important ultimately was routed through their status as anthems.

Sorry for the double post

Itgehane felt like an instant classic the moment I heard it. There’s a certain timelessness about it - like it’s so familiar and reminiscent of a million other songs yet evidently it’s own thing. And yes, it kills on the dancefloor every time.

It’s a deceptively polished track. I don’t really know what to say about it other than I think it’s gorgeous and I love it.

I see it compared to Inspector Norse a lot, but they are so so very different beasts. That song is massive, anthemic and cathartic, evoking emotions of sheer exuberance. It has a climax. Itgehane is cozy and comforting (literally making you forget your worries); it flows and weaves perfectly fluidly until its done. I think it's a solid club track, but I also don't quite get the cult around it.
― octobeard, Friday, 29 November 2019 19:23 (four months ago) link
Itgehane is alright but I the 'chorus' melody is just close enough to the middle 8 of 'Sowing the Seeds of Love' to get the latter tune stuck in my head after a few minutes. My problem and not the tune's though!

Your problem is listening to too much Tears for Fears. There's nothing remarkable to me about Itgehane other than the lovely timbre of her voice, I prefer Starry Night. Inspector Norse really pops in a way Itgehane doesn't. I don't get that comparison at all.

Peggy gou as a producer is a little bit overrated imo

I like this and Inspector Norse. Both huge anthems that struck me as immediately appealing altho in different ways
