Picture Perfect World

Gossip unleashed their new single Perfect World a few days ago, title track taken from the band’s forthcoming album. Initially the band started working on the new set with Mark Ronson, until Brian Higgins aka Xenomania was called in.
Since the trio’s debut in 2007, Standing in the Way of Control, they have taken different routes, not just sticking to punk rock. Beth Ditto’s superb solo venture, with dance duo Simian Mobile Disco, also proved very successful. The new song doesn’t have apparent guitar riffs but simply reverts to keyboard and a rhythmic drum roll. Focus is still on the energetic chorus. Brilliant all the same. Summer’s here.
