Pantha du Prince - "Frau Im Mond, Sterne Laufen" (Singles Going Steady)

Pantha du Prince's latest single unsurprisingly features a wonderful late-night chillout vibe.

Chris Ingalls: A wonderful late-night chillout vibe. I like the combination of digital bleeps and organic percussion. The bass line is simple yet irresistible. And it earns that six-minute run time. The song goes through a number of different yet subtle stages that never seem forced. [8/10]

Emmanuel Elone: There's nothing blatantly offensive about "Frau Im Mond, Sterne Laufen", but that's exactly its problem. It's light electronica with enough added effects to make it feel like a fully realized song. Still, even with the extra bells and whistles, this song still feels like it's more at home in an elevator instead of a complete album. If it took more chances, it might have been a good song, but its inherent introversion negatively impacts its enjoyability. [4/10]

Chad Miller: Overall the song is pretty okay. The instrumentation is decent, and the production is impressive. The melody is decent, but it isn't particularly memorable at the same time. Everything sounds relatively the same throughout the song, but somehow the track gets away with it. [6/10]

Pantha du Prince's new album The Triad releases 20th May 2016 via Rough Trade.

SCORE: 6.00
