Featuring the vocal talents of Alexanderson from XY&O, "Synthesize" again finds ADAL mining the '80s and coming up with another rich vein of form.

Perhaps a more soulful sound than his previous work - and that's down in no small part to Alexanderson's passionate and carefree voice, delivering all sorts of electronic-based sex metaphors - the track bounces along on bright synths and soft rock programmed drums. It's great fun, and a fine antidote to the winter blues.

"Synthesize" is out today. ADAL plays the Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen on 21 February.
