She Rex – Televise – Single Review

She Rex is a new Swedish electro-dance outfit.

She Rex

Tumbling out of the speakers like acrobats on display late to the arena and pressed for time as combinations of sparkling glittery electronica and instrumentation are set around electro-percussion, which metronomes as though it is on an overdose of speed, yet, the balance of the slowly evolving dreamy vocals affords Televise, their one and only song – thus far, a luxurious carpet pile in which to sink the toes and frolic through the room akin to a spring-lamb.

I sense a set of musicians who know precisely what they are trying to achieve and more than that have the ability to deliver it with a panache that even a jaded ’70s punk-rocker can find great delight in partaking.

I am already regretting there isn’t a full LP – complete with remixes to hear. I suggest that She Rex is a band that will be in wider consciousness in short order.

They are that new that at this stage there is no social media page or website in existence to accompany the article.

FEMME – Fire With Fire – Single Review

The English electro-dance creator FEMME released the single Fire With Fire within the past hour.



In theory there are a myriad of reasons that I shouldn’t be featuring Fire With Fire, however the nature of music is that it is always purely subjective and on hitting play, despite my insistence of intransigence, my body had to join in with the track as the infectious just over three minutes of discothèque skipped in easy joy around the room.

I am minded of the tunes that used to launch out of the Irish radio station Atlantic 252 as I regularly drove up and down the West of England and Scotland betwixt Glasgow and London overnight in the late ’90s.

HOLY MATRIMONY – Finer Things – Audio

On the 31st of March the English electro-dance trio HOLY MATRIMONY will be releasing the EP Dearly Beloved: Part One.



Within the past few minutes the third of the four tracks –  Finer Things on the EP (available on bandcamp) has been made available.

A five and two thirds minutes of folding electronics and vocal flight which encase the listener in silken webs that, to me, best extrapolates their ability to compose music in what is otherwise a release of brighter climes and perhaps it is due to its more greyed shading that it catches my attention –  particularly as it allows the tenor voice to explore its natural registry, affording the track an unexpected fluidity and organic movement.

Faun Racket

Faun Racket from Tallinn in Estonia is the electro-dance duo of Andres Lõo and Talis Paide.

Faun Racket

Be prepared to loose yourself in the flow of bassy electronics that is Faun Racket. There is something compellingly isolationist about the generous textures that float around the room, which finds the listener enveloped in their own consciousness amongst a crowd.

Whilst undoubtedly high-tech in production, there is equally something primevally raw in the out-put that draws the mind and it is their ability to create the basal from the complex that makes Faun Racket of considerable interest.  It is early morning as I type this, I wish it were late at night as this is music that compels of strobes flashing across the darkness.

The well paced tracks, whilst not overly long for the genre, typically running to four or so minutes, have the sense of being far longer, as the music slows down the tempo of the day in a stream of  luxuriant brooding sounds leaving the listener gently swaying to the aural landscape.
