I think we’ve just found the exact musical point at which irony comes full circle, transcending knowing smirks, affected head bobbling, and general cheek-tonguing. This music isn’t supposed to be funny any more. It’s too good. With breathless yelps and stop-start rhythms, Teen Inc. blur the lines between humour and suspense. The end product is as ambiguous as Prince’s underwear drawer - over-the-top yet deadly serious. “Fountains” is spasmic electro funk of the highest order.
