Fans of Dreamers and Coin will warm to this synth-driven quartet, whose “La La Love” might be the catchiest pop confection we’ve heard in a while. Danceable, sensual and rendered with a superlative mix that puts singer David James’ voice right out front and clear as a bell, the song is absolutely radio ready. The sweet, romantic “River” and the airy, lighter-sounding “Parachute,” with its fingersnapping cadence, are maybe less catchy, but no less polished. The latter has an especially visual lyric motif that would surely inspire a dynamic video treatment. All in all, Fate Under Fire’s sound is ultra-current and has been presented with a confidence that should impress labels to come calling.
