Brighton six-piece The Go Team! imbue ‘Semicircle’ with the high-octane vibes of a marching band taking on block party jams, Northern Soul and cutesy indie pop. It might sound crazy, but it works beautifully: it took them to the US and the Detroit Youth Choir, who steal the show with their energetic, soulful contributions on an album full of day-glo intensity. It squeezes together Motown, chattering funk, classic hip hop and uplifting pop. In the shape of ‘Semicircle Song’, a wide-eyed, vitamin E shot, or the magical rush of ‘If There’s One Thing You Should Know’, The Go! Team fashion the kind of sugar-coated gems that should be made freely available on prescription.
