L.A.'s De Lux are a post-disco dance-punk DIY duo that sound like they could have come out of 1979 or 1982 just as easily as 2013. Founders and multi-instru- mentalists Sean Guerin and Isaac Franco didnt meet so much as simply appear to each other, sometime before high school ended and after learning to correctly fall off skateboards began.

Even at age 18, however, it was the kind of connection that had been years in the making.

From lead track Better At Making Time, De Lux roars through Psychedelic Furs or Duran Duran-style pop (Love Is A Phase), delivers shouts and whispers like James Murphy at his most frantic (Make Space), sinks into Eno-esque moments of bliss (On The Day) and rockets through the agit-funk David Byrne-style rave- up finale Sometimes Your Friends Are Not Your Friends. And this is all from the first-take they never re-record, says Sean. If they don't perfectly catch that beat as it happens, they let it go. Thats probably why Voyage sounds as wild and alive as it does.

Just like on that surprise recording Better Making Time, youre not hearing a band come together. And just like how they met, youre hearing a band appear.
