In a rare interview with Tank magazine, PC Music founder AG Cook talked about the role of the computer in making “amateur music that is also potentially very slick”. This aesthetic may be the root of why the label’s music repels as many as it charms. Personally I go back and forth on this stuff, but when it’s lightly applied — as on this new track from London composer-turned-producer Harle and, if my ears don’t lie, vocalist Hannah Diamond — it’s a giddy joy: a sugary pop-trance rush that bounces around throwing its best diva poses and singing into its hairbrush.
