The Test Icicles (featuring two USA-born members) contributed the noisy and metal-tinged For Screening Purposes Only (2005) to the electroclash scene in Britain. Then Devonte Hynes debuted solo under the moniker Lightspeed Champion with the mediocre alt-country litanies of Falling Off The Lavender Bridge (2007) and the lavish orchestral pop ballads of Life Is Sweet Nice to Meet You (2010), that sound like a revival of the revival staged in the 1990s by Apples In Stereo and Neutral Milk Hotel (I don't to Wake up Alone).

Hynes' project evolved into Blood Orange, whose sound coalesced via Coastal Groves (2011) and Cupid Deluxe (2013). These are collections of lame, moronic, funk-soul ballads that hark back to mainstream pop and r'n'b of the 1980s.
