SONG OF THE DAY: Circuit 21 – Calling All Angels

A Pop/Hi-NRG version of Underworld’s classic “Born Slippy” – who would have thought that could work so well? Well, “Calling All Angels” isn’t exactly a new topline over the ‘Trainspotting’ anthem, but the intro and breaks are clearly “inspired” by it. The lead singer from Bearforce1 follows up his cover of E.G. Daily’s “Love in the Shadows” with an original song about unrequited love over a modern Hi-NRG beat. If you are a fan of Almighty or Cahill productions, you will love this. The boxing-themed video is so well-produced that you wonder if it’s the pilot for a new TV show or movie. Circuit 21’s styling is so reminiscent of the later Army of Lovers videos that I could only imagine how incredible an Alexander Bard vs Circuit 21 collaboration would be…
