Digital manipulation. Listen also at 1.35

It just sounds to me like the recording of Neil's voice with the treble taken down. You can hear something approaching this again later in the song. I'm glad this poll has made me have a few listens - what a brilliant track. My Spotify also played me a super Talk Talk song with Happiness in the title, it's worth checking out.

Sorry to reply to my own post so soon, but the Talk Talk track is "Happiness is easy". I also strongly recommend the Teleman song "Nights on Earth" with their most PSB sounding track, including the line "Happiness can break your heart". I'd love a PSB remix of this, or a cover by the Boys!
