The Danish indie-synth band The House are finalising details for the release of the LP – Friendly Fire.
The first track to surface from the album – the title Friendly Fire, which was also made available as a stand alone single on the 2nd finds The House delivering a song with greater spotlight on the synths than much of their music previously featured, which consequently has enabled them to generate a track of atmospheric layering in which the listener can explore the range of frequencies surfacing from the speakers in a song that has a vaguely Ultravox referenced feel.
The English indie-synth band Rich List released the LP Hold Your Forked Tongue yesterday.
There is a melancholic undertow to the ten track album as electronica sweeps through the room in expanding gentle waves while instrumentation provides the darkening shadows topped by an emotional vocal that is able to capture and express the layers of the tracks.
Their latest release – The Rules – is an approaching five minutes of summer-vibe that fills the room with gliding feet as the silky synth presses through the body in warming waves of sound that extend an irresistible invitation on to the dance-floor with its retro-80’s flavouring.
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.
