With Automatic, the band have made a step-change from their debut. It's more disciplined, directional and arguably more danceable. As on Phase, they are unafraid to let a track luxuriate in length without ever succumbing to self-indulgence. The arrangements, tightly structured thanks to Tom Shanahan (bass) and Jim Rindfleish's fatback drumming, permit space for the others to add spice to the stew, topped off with Kevin McDowell's ethereal vocals as Mildlife effortlessly glide between live performance and studio songwriting.

The centrepiece of Automatic is the title track where the band sound like Kraftwerk and Herbie Hancock on quarantined lockdown in Bob Moog's Trumansburg workshop. It's both a departure and quintessentially Mildlife. This is music you can dance to rather than ‘dance music' and it's all the better for it.
