It is always a delight to return to the English synthwave duo From Apes To Angels who first featured in 2015.
From Apes To Angels
On the 30th they will be releasing their latest single Mere Mortal – a track that takes the listener back to Sheffield in the late ’70s and early ’80s – which is somehow appropriate given that one half of the duo is from Sheffield. Once again rather than sounding a pastiche of what has gone before From Apes To Angels are able turn the retrospective references in to a song which is suitably attired for today, with its busier tempo.
Word also arrives that this year has more to come, with possibilities of further collaborations, more singles and the possibility of an EP or LP – I look forward to firming up on news.

The French synthwave outfit Chronica will be releasing the EP Thrill on the 1st of December.
The track K.I.S.S. has been released as a standalone single in advance of the EP (available on bandcamp) and is a collaboration with the English dreamwave duo From Apes To Angels who have regularly featured over the years.
K.I.S.S. is a hazy wash of softly brushed electronica that floats calmly through the ears whilst the duality of voices hypnotise the audience.
Word also arrives that From Apes To Angels are in the process of recording more music to follow-up the release of their début EP New Skin which featured in June.

A four track release that is best heard under strobed lighting as the duo deliver a soundtrack that has a slightly retro-feel to it in which the listener can immerse themselves and wash away the mundanities of every day life to the layered texturing and dreamy vocal.
The second song Gift Tag is the sprightliest of the four whilst simultaneously the most steeped in the roots of the Blitz Club.

The English synth-wave duo From Apes To Angels release the single Perfection on the 8th of February.

Made available for streaming a couple of hours ago Perfection is a circle of its own virtue as From Apes To Angels up the ante with their second single in just over four and a half minutes of dreamy electronica.
If you were stepping into Savile Row for your first bespoke tailoring Perfection is the cloth you would have in mind, whilst seeking to describe the softness, comfort and fabric weight desired. The music floats, akin to an illusionists trick as it hovers seemingly unsupported, across the room as From Apes To Angels match lustrous synthetics with a beguiling vocal which French-kisses the timpani sending shivers of anticipation down the spine.
Somehow the duo have been able to remove a pillar of familiarity from their previous release – Head & Heart and leave the audience with more by which to be enticed as From Apes To Angels tease the audience with a texture that gently gently caresses as it squeezes.
