The English indie-synth quintet AFFAIRS release the single Gracious World on the 17th.
AFFAIRS is a quintet who first featured back in 2013 and each time I return to them I am always struck by the distinctive vocal and immediately remember why they have been such long stayers on the various sites over the years.
Blending flowing synths with glitter guitar enables AFFAIRS in Gracious World to build a track of expansive architecture, while bass and percussion tighten the bolts keeping the ideas progressing forwards whilst generating the bubbling pace through which the vocal soars around the room, captivating the listeners attention.
Every day as I fire up the computer to review music submissions – I am reminded of the founding co-partner of – the Indie Bands Blog started back in 2009 – who will for ever be – 39. Love and thanks as always to Julie Norbury.
The New Year Ninety Chart 2015 – seventy to sixty-one.
The English band Affairs released a single towards the end of last year.
To accompany the release a new video has just come out for Contact. The signature combination of soothing synths and operatic baritone are surrounded by forceful percussion and melodic guitar chords, to provide three and a half minutes of fascination.
