every 80s sound crushed into 4 minutes of good

We're gonna go out on a limb here: Big Black Delta LOVE the 80s. Not only have they titled their new single after the long dead video format Betamax (which, pedantic fact fans, actually had superior sound quality to the more popular VHS...), they've also decided to throw about 5 different 80s sounds into one tune. The end result is a bit gothy, a bit synthy, a bit indie poppy and a John Waters film soundtracky, but splendidly, it's also a bit GOOD. Apparently Jay-Z's a fan, whatever that means.

This may just be us, but it also really sounds like a Christmas tune. Why is that? We can't actually identify why, but listen and hopefully you'll see what we're saying--
