It's been five years since Digitalism's last full-length, the noisy and boisterous I Love You Dude. Mirage is, in comparison, a little more considered in feel, but wears its' influences and inspirations even more proudly. From the start, there are obvious nods to classic Daft Punk ("Arena", "Utopia"), LCD Soundsystem ("Go Time"), and Shit Robot ("Destination Breakdown"). Others may note occasional nods to the Chemical Brothers, Justice, and late period Orbital. Throughout, the veteran duo keeps their eyes firmly on the dancefloor, despite the radio-friendly feel of indie-dance exercises such as "Indigo Skies", "Dynamo" and French Touch style "No Cash".
