The English indie-synth outfit Rich List are working towards the release of the LP Hold Your Forked Tongue.
In advance of the album their début single Esha Ness, which will itself be released on the 31st, is a combination of light and dark and takes the mind back to the synth-rock of the early ’80s with its considered lyrical context laying between bright instrumentation and atmospheric electronics.
The US indie-synth duo Pet Tigers revealed a new single earlier in the month.
Share A Slice is an easy flowing almost three and a half minutes of smokey silkiness that wends its way around the room in combinations of synths and percussion rounded by the distinctive vocal that immediately identifies the duo.
Fair Haven is a new indie-synth quartet from the USA.
With only one track to hear and less than a month in to existence Fair Haven have set out a space for themselves which holds attention.
Warming melodies drift around the room in tandem with the scintillating vocal that caresses the earlobes. Luxurious guitar floats through the timpani, whilst the intoxicating fragility of voice takes centre stage from which a sparkling key-board plays counterpoint to the drum kit that keeps everything in order.
Of particular notice is the manner in which Fair Haven have launched themselves, as though a seasoned group of players, with sublime tempo changes which enable them in – Life – to deliver a composition of delicate silk which has immense tensile strength and a quartet I look forward to hearing much more of in short order.
