Perfect Son

Tobiasz Biliński’s Perfect Son is a descendant of sophisti-pop, a British style from the 1980s that wielded the polished and pristine elements of jazz and soft rock as a reaction against punk. Though few people besides music critics actually use the term, sophisti-pop’s influence lingers: Last year marked the 30th anniversary of Talk Talk’s post-rock god particle Spirit of Eden, while the 1975’s Love It if We Made It was explicitly modeled upon the Blue Nile’s The Downtown Lights. The sophisticated part refers to the traits that elevate albums like Perfect Son’s Cast above the fray, regardless of trends: arch lyricism, fussy melodies, and unblemished musicianship on lavish equipment. Cast embodies all of these qualities perhaps too well it’s surely a curious fit on a label like Sub Pop.
