Ansonia – Rest Of Me – Audio

The US electro-indie duo Ansonia released their début EP – ULTRASENSITIVE on the 23rd.



A blues streaked guitar plies its wares with electronica laying as the infrastructure to support a more than capable vocal to deliver an EP (available on bandcamp) which takes the listener on a journey of easy to engage songs, which, although quite different from one another, each contain captivating flowing combinations.

My pick of the release being Rest Of Me.

Making a welcome return to the site after a two year absence in Mirror, I’m Not A Band, are discovered in a richer tapestry of sound than when last featured, though of similar singular disposition enabling them to create a space of their own in a crowded market-sector and the listener who enjoys nature finds themselves enticed by the expressive keys as those who enjoy stemmed loops and are tempted by the gloss of electronic-overdub whilst alienating neither approaches to music as the natural spaces of absorbing vocals and keyboard are given the room to breath and work their spell as are the vocoder and gadgets.

Mirror – Single – I’m Not A Bandis available on iTunes.*

With only a couple of tracks that I have been able to hear Luster have an infectious quality that captures attention – more so in their most most recent reveal You’ve Got The Heat a beat that finds the heart pumping in syncopation with the joie de vivre that skips through the room and the listener finds themselves subconsciously swaying to the tempo.

Given the difference between the two pieces, the earlier – Good Dreamer being a more layered melancholia – this is an outfit I look forward to hearing more of in short order as by which ever thread Luster choose to hang the fruit they are capable of delivering a track that soaks in to the limbic system, taking the audience with them.

First introduced almost three years ago, Bella Loka, have a distinctive style and instantly recognisable vocal that immediately captures the listeners attention as the fourth of the eleven tracks on the LP – Go Down – exemplifies.

Abrupt switches in tempo along with the guitar powering through the speakers one moment, the next fading behind the synths, gives the song an extensive soundscape, whilst vocal delivers an expressive and expansive richness to Go Down.

In conjunction with the release of the The Light, The Mud & The Dark Tea Boothby (the singer) created an interactive multi-option video game, which has as the soundtrack clips from the LP, Colin: The Chicken & The Egg.

The Light, The Mud & The Dark is available on Amazon.*
