You can always count on Perfume. Even if you don’t like their A-side track, they’ve always got a killer B-side waiting in the wings to snatch wigs.
The iconic trio will release their latest single “Spending all my time” this week, complete with two brand new B-side tracks, “Hurly Burly” and “Point”. They’ve both leaked online, and of course, they’re amazing.
“Hurly Burly” has been the most anticipated out of the two. It’s far more typical Perfume than the Western-leaning “Spending all my time”, with a fun and fresh summer sound. It’s upbeat, but far more relaxed than a lot of their harder-hitting dancefloor fillers.
I mean, seriously, as if a Perfume song called “Hurly Burly” isn’t going to be incredible. Just the name alone tells you everything you need to know before even hearing it.

The other track, “Point”, isn’t as addictive as the almighty “Hurly Burly”, but it’s more interesting. The production sounds like the whimsical electronica from SEGA’s Phantasy Star Online combined with a mean drum ‘n’ bass beat.
Although it could never be a single, it fits the bill of flaw-free b-side or album cut perfectly.
