What do you get when you mix together an Iranian entrepreneur, an Italian metronome, a heartbroken Mongolian and a failed American Svengali? The answer is MANS of course!
MANS, which formed in late 2011, have spent a lot of time in the studio working on their debut album (firstly in Fitzrovia, and then in King’s Cross). As Max Luthy, the man behind the mic tells us, their debut album is set to be an excellent composition of colourful dance and disco tracks. While I can’t say I’ve given the album a full listen, yet, I can’t help but agree with the American Svengali having just spun the album’s groovy third cut, “Various Lovers.”
Much like the rest of disco-revivalists before them, MANS dip into leery, heat-inducing falsetto’s which Prince and MGMT so frequently brandish. Between the sexy lyrics, the tasty beats, the seducing bass, and the sensual melody, it is easy to see how this track could revive cult-disco classics like Saturday Night Fever and Boogie Nights.
I can see it now, girls in tight shorts dancing in their roller blades on the disco floor, whilst Stevie Wonder and Prince have a drink and bob their heads to MANS‘ fresh new tune. Who needs Barry White when you’ve got MANS to charm the ladies!
