After a first round of matches that turned everything we thought we knew about football on its head, we’re none the wiser about who is going to win the World Cup. But at least at Listen Outside we’ve got good music.
For Portugal we have Best Youth who are surely only one step from being massive in the UK. Get one of those songs licensed on an advert or in a near-future sci-fi program and you’ll have it. They’re a duo who make gorgeous chiffon slow disco songs with Kylie Moments throughout. Enjoy the light from the Mirrorball.
For Morocco we have some absolutely frantic electro. Kinshasa describe their sound as ‘joyful hybrid afro wave’ and that seems about right. Enjoy yourselves.
