It's the state Massive Attack called Mezzanine, the same headspace occupied by Bill Murray in Lost In Translation: those sensations halfway between sleep and wakefulness brought on by jet-lag or over-indulgence, when reality seems remote and unreachable beyond the hotel window or a mental fug. And it’s the place Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier inhabit on their third album, trapped – as the title suggests – in the twilight zone between day and night.
For while The Sun & The Neon Light is very obviously the creation of two men still in love with the dancefloor, it also probes into the stresses a long-standing and intense affair with clubland can put on your relationships with the outside world.
