To be honest, nobody was holding out for MGMT to pen a woozy croon-fest that wouldn’t sound out of place at Pretty In Pink’s graduation prom, but then again, no real complaints when it comes to ‘Hand It Over’. A breezy, swaying number - a dreamy closing sequence shot through this duo’s typically oddball kaleidoscope - it’s a song that touches on the many hurdles of creativity and expectation. “If we lose our touch, it won’t mean much if everyone’s confused,” it lulls, backing vocals chipping in with the refrain that titles the song. That said, with this understated and refreshing switch in approach, it looks like MGMT have a few more doors left to open yet.
