Brandon Flowers - Can’t Deny My Love

There’s absolutely nothing ‘Can’t Deny My Love’ lacks.

Is he human? Dancer? Or some pop prodigy sent from space? Brandon Flowers’ shape-shifting identity has been edging towards a single like ‘Can’t Deny My Love’, but that doesn’t make it any less of a revelation.

Produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (a surefire guarantee for pop #banger success), the bonkers lead from new solo album ‘The Desire Effect’ contains pan-pipes, jolting synths and just enough shameless guitar parts to give it a Killers factor. Flowers’ customary, grandiose emotional statements still remain, but they’re being delivered in some kind of maddening, ultra-gusto pop prism. Part’ Blade Runner’ soundtrack, part ‘Reflektor’, part ‘Get Lucky’-style funk twist, there’s absolutely nothing ‘Can’t Deny My Love’ lacks.

‘The Desire Effect’ is out 17th May.
