Kylie Says Something – Single Review: Say Something by Kylie Minogue★★★★

At first blush, a shimmery new Kylie Minogue dance anthem would seem wasted during a pandemic in which we are unable to dance together or even get together. Ten years ago she debuted All the Lovers with a video featuring a writhing human pyramid that epically exaggerated a carefree socializing we just can’t imagine right here, right now. But sometimes we simply need a new Kylie tune. I’ve always felt she has the power to turn the sunshine on. And we need that light right now, set to a good beat.

Kylie Minogue’s Say Something is available now, taken from the forthcoming album DISCO released November 6th 2020

Say Something, her lead single from the forthcoming album (with the blasé title DISCO) hits that sweet spot. It flirts and coos like a standard-make, latter day Minogue louche classic – but the lyrics seem especially apropos in the Covid-19 era’s yearning for togetherness, both socially and sexually. Its strange song structure shouldn’t really work (the chorus is barely a heartbeat and Kylie seems to drop it willy-nilly into the tune when the mood strikes) but it’s extremely catchy and who can resist a slickly produced, love at first sight motivated Kylie who’s always been her own best dancefloor muse? All this bodes well for a late 2020 album release that may herald the beginning of a post-lockdown world with a synth flourish, or a cow bell.
