Bastian's Happy Flight are apparently named after a track on the Never Ending Story soundtrack, which should give an indication as to their inspirations. Stylistically, their roomy synth-pop/80s rock grooves sound like the result of many nights spent listening to Tears For Fears, The Cure and Spandau Ballet. The big synths, rubbery bass, echo-laden production, Robert Smith-ish vocals and eyes-closed guitar solos on "It's OK", "In My Mind" and "My Love's (Not Good Enough)" could have been lifted straight from a mid-'80s alternative pop record. Remix-wise, the Dublin Aunts provide the best rework - a cheeky, piano-laden nu-disco/pop take that sounds a little like Friendly Fires. Recommended.
