The frenetic, playful, long-running British dance music duo Basement Jaxx is set to return later this summer with Junto, their first proper new album in five years, and they’ve shared the outrageously sunshiney early singles “Mermaid Of Salinas” and “Unicorn.” But their fundamentals are still strong, and “Never Say Never,” the latest single to come from the album, proves it. “Never Say Never” is a majestic and regal disco-house track with an assured build and a lead vocal from the London singer ETML. It has none of the frantic cartoonishness that so many other Jaxx singles boast, and, coming from them, it sounds like a calm exhalation. Listen to it below.
