Kiesza is already earning all the right press, with an especially encouraging share from Pitchfork among many others.  Everything about her debut track Hideaway is pulling influence from 90s dance.  The singing (this girl can howl) which is reminiscent of 1993 mega-hit Show Me Love, and the unapologetically indulgent and dance worthy production both push against the boundaries built by acts like Disclosure in which dance and electro-pop cross and marry.  It also fills the niche that Azealia Banks rapping-over-90s-dance may have begun to fill, had she ever released any proper LP.  Either way, put me on a dance floor and blast this track.  I’ll probably be stomping and wailing.
