Credit where credit is due, though: Polygon Palace are the ones responsible for the song's excellent opening lines. "All you wanted to do was get away from here," sings frontman Adam Ferns. "For all I know, you're always going to feel the same." In a song about exoticism and escape, here's an unexpected note of resignation. It puts me in mind of those articles you read sometimes, about how Facebook amplifies our tendency to fret about our lives, or how Google makes it easier to linger over an ex. Technologies change--they get faster and more impressive--but human hearts continue to behave pretty much the way they always have.
But lest you get the impression the song lacks a sense of humor, I'll also point out that it contains one of the better shout-outs I've heard in a while. Ferns proposes that he and a companion hijack a time machine and "travel to year seven-triple-oh," where they can--it's hard to hear, but it's been confirmed by the band--"kick it like Han Solo." More Star Wars references in slick club pop, please.
