Thank God for dance music. And guitars. “Antibodies,” from Poni Hoax’s new album Images of Sigrid, is like that workout tune LCD Soundsystem penned for Nike. It pumps hard and wants to to motivate you, keeps you out when you are either out of it at 12 miles gone, or struggling at 3 a.m. Only it’s all delivered by Ian Curtis with a synth-pop accent and there are no hipsters in sight. After too many weeks of BBQs, fires on the beach, and dubstep when the sun went down, these icey French New-Wavers make me believe in dance music again.
