Escapist, dreamlike and evasive are some of the few attributes that have been given to Lindstrom and Prins Thomas' work. Their sound is a bit of a hybrid: it never seems to be full on Balearic, though heavily associated with the scene and it doesn't seem quite italo either, though reminiscent of that genre as well. An elaborate disco instrumental boom box, with several rhythmic sections of singular instruments playing and combining one by one, with one and then another and another for long, spatial segments, only for swooning synths to direct the changes of pace and melody into another realm. These guys have too many tools, too many directions of pace and too many well-implemented ideas to not regard them as essential dance musicians.
