Finlandia/Singapur is an emo-maths-rock trio from Ecuador.
With many tracks extending well over five minutes Finlandia/Singapur deliver music which has both a feeling of the extemporary to it as well as an underlying sense of anxiety which is expressed through both the collisions of instrumentation as well as the screaming vocal and this just under ten minute and a half minutes live version of Aprender A Nadar is a good starting point from which to explore their output.
Finlandia/Singapur are establishing both a local audience as well as more internationally having just returned from a tour in Peru. I look forward to hearing more of the trio.
Pink Tiger is a solo synth-dance creator based in England who surfaced this month.
Pink Tiger is in the process of officially releasing his début four track EP Genesis anytime soon. I have just been contemplating music created through a Stylophone and lamenting that so many producers think they need to create confusion to define distinctiveness in the world of EDM and this couldn’t have hit the inbox at a more opportune moment.
As Do The Right Thing hoves in to earshot so the landscape clears in a clarity of composition in which the listener finds themselves immediately extending invitations to the dance-floor, resulting in a confusion of intertwined happy limbs.
The synth-rock project Echo Lima from Australia is planning to release the début EP later this year.

Whilst essentially centred as a solo project the three tracks that thus far have surfaced all feature the same Bass player and Guitarist, so it will be interesting to discover whether this becomes a trio or to continue with other guest musicians.
The latest single, the third since formation last year – Gone Too Far – has stronger emphasis on synth than material previously delivered, which have been more rock derived, while this discovers something akin to Ultravox on speed and a delight it is too.
I look forward to following the journey of Echo Lima in due course.
