Dekathlon sounds like an unholy alliance of majestic nonchalance of Vangelis and better-to-burn-out era Neil Young coupled with the dreamscapes of Kavinsky. Unpretentious from the exterior, the stained-glass universe of Dekathlon explodes into full chromatic glow from within their sonic dome. Executed with electronic accuracy, the musical alchemy on these tracks transmutes tonal qualities into existential prospects of fundamental quality in the vein of Slava Tsukerman’s Liquid Sky or Nichibutsu’s Moon Cresta.
