Talking Heads meets lo-fi house.

London artist Reckonwrong has unveiled an unexpected new direction on his second single for Nic Tasker’s Whities label.

The producer made it onto FACT’s list of house and techno producers to watch in 2016 thanks to last year’s killer EP for the label, but his latest 12″ features his first fully vocal-led track.

‘The Passions of Pez’ is an avant-pop classic in the making, with new wave guitar and a tight drum machine groove backing Reckonwrong’s very ’80s-inspired vocals. Think Talking Heads meets lo-fi house.

The single is one of a killer run from the Whities label this year, which has also released essential 12″s from Avalon Emerson, Minor Science and Quirke in 2016.

Whities 009 is out now. You can buy from the Whities website, and buy tickets to December’s Whities party in London featuring Reckonwrong and Avalon Emerson here.
