Casual Strangers – Voltage Control – Audio

After the successful launch of the LP Wedding Album in October the US synth-wave outfit Casual Strangers return with a new track.

Casual Strangers - Voltage Control

Casual Stranger

Having first featured back in 2014, Casual Strangers continue to offer new soundscapes of different dimensions in which the listener can dwell in comfort.

Voltage Control oscillates around the room to a vibrant electro-loop, phased instrumentation and keys are torqued through transformative sequencers taking the audience in to a parallel Universe of tranquil oscillation from which they have no desire to return.

Vansire – Driftless – Audio

The US synth-wave duo Vansire are pinning down detail for an EP due for imminent release.



Becalming the fiercest of rocky days the audience may have had –  Vansire deliver, in Driftless (available as a stand alone single on bandcamp), just over three and two thirds minutes of music which drifts effortlessly around the cerebellum and frontal lobe bringing every thing back to equilibrium as synthetics, instrumentation and vocal harmonise to slow down the activity of the synapses.

Vansire have no need to pulse heavily on the ears, rather akin to a skilled practitioner of massage, are able to ease away tensions with a composition wrapped in warm towelling and relaxing metronome.

Ely – Old Love – Audio

Ely is a US synth-wave quartet.



With little to hear, the only certainty is a desire to hear more. Combining instrumentation and synthetics Ely deliver music which has a retro new-romanticism inference to it that folds its reach around the listener in softly disposed layers of sound.

The latest track to surface is Old Love.

The almost weightless sounds float like feathers in the air with an easy lilt, but rather than being carried away in the breeze with little regard, the feathers are fascinating for their textures and colours. Another Juggle are able to produce sounds which are on cursory glance unremarkable, however there is more to the output than mere easy listening backdrops.

The quartet create tracks that find the synths rolling through the room in spacious gliding steps with the guitar adding to the feeling of elegant unobtrusiveness, whilst the percussion and bass paint darker shadows and the lyrics deliver melancholic reportage delivered with a slight echo which gives the sound its intrigue.

It will be interesting to discover how Another Juggle are able to capitalise on the release of the LP Dance Sunshine, Dance which came out on the 29th of January as the ten track album takes the listener from virtual pop to some delightfully dark thoughts, which inevitabely are the tracks that capture my attention.
