“Love Etc.” (Stream)

    "Love Etc." is the first single off Pet Shop Boys’ forthcoming tenth studio album, Yes, and it finds the duo staying a lot truer to the quality and form of their earlier work than a lot groups working on their third decade together. "Love etc." is a frigid synth concoction that evokes silhouettes of young people making out in a dark alley somewhere, with a slightly industrial edge. Like I said, they’re staying pretty true to form. British production duo Xenomania helped Pet Shop Boys out on Yes, which is out on Parolophone March 23 in the UK. "Love Etc." is out March 16 with remixes by Frankmusik, Gui Boratto, and Pet Shop Boys.
