The title track off Plugs' debut ep That Number sets the bar very high. With its slow funky groove, steel drum melody and Hot-Chip-esque vocals and electronics, we could already be hearing next year's indie dancefloor anthem. Even though the beat is plodding, its steady and driving and once one part of your body starts to move to it, the rest seem to be drawn into the hypnotic motion the track creates.
The band come from St Albans and feature Morgan Quaintance from Does It Offend You Yeah?, and while i never got into DIOYY?, Plugs offer a more pleasing and exciting sound. They even got Yuksek, who I've never heard of but is apparently quite hyped, to remix the track and he's created an even bigger beast of a dancefloor filler. While keeping the full vocal track he's added a heavy bass, some odd noises and tonnes of energy to enhance the ever-driving presence of the track.
