On the face of it, the youthful Lawrence brothers have done nothing new on their debut album. As with so many dance-
pop albums of late, you’ll find a bunch of guests wrapping their vocals around sturdy and robust house, garage, dubstep, bass, r’n’b and disco templates. But what the production duo concoct from these everyday elements is nothing short of awesome. Nearly every single track here pings and zings with playful, spirited and remarkably assured energy. Whether it’s the smart, infectious throb of the AlunaGeorge collaboration White Noise, the grandstanding Latch with Sam Smith, Confess to Me, with a strong Jessie Ware, or Help Me Lose My Mind (with London Grammar’s Hannah Reid), Disclosure rarely put a foot wrong on the most joyous album of the season. You’ll be humming these tunes months from now. disclosureofficial.com
