To kick-start their 2018 release programme, long-serving Belgian nu-disco imprint Eskimo has turned to an old friend: George "NTEIBNT" Bakalalos. While this appears to be his first single in some time, he's previously released a wealth of material on the label, often in cahoots with this single's guest vocalist, Stella. Her distinctive vocals take pride of place on "A State Nearby", a cheery chunk of gently bouncy nu-disco goodness rich in throbbing, Italo-disco style arpeggio bass, tactile piano riffs (think St Etienne's cover of Neil Young's "Only Love With Break Your Heart") and dreamy chords. Bakalakos opts for a warmer and groovier feel on bonus cut "I Do", creating feel-good vibes via the use of crunchy disco guitars, Balearic synthesizer motifs and dreamy vocal snippets.
