If you’re a sucker for the delightful synthetic melodies Cashmere Cat and Mura Masa, this brand new pop double act are straight up your alley. With a production style that heavily juxtaposes the synthetic with the organic, this promising duo will surely make themselves known with their shimmering debut EP ‘The Sound’.

Drawing elements from future bass, UK Garage and synth pop, ‘The Sound’ covers a vast palette emotions, from the sincere melancholy reminiscent Burial and Four Tet to the giddy future bass synth stylings from the likes Australian contemporaries such as Basenji and Wave Racer. beginning with title track ‘The Sound’, we are met with a laid-back pairing lush chords and organic glockenspiel top lines. The vocals give a magnificent human touch, while the instrumental boasts a beautiful hybrid recorded and programmed elements. The second track ‘Like That?’ begins with a lo-fi ukulele riff that trails f into a reflective groove woody synths and complex percussive grooves that begin to back a huge wall analogue synth chords. As the more instrumentally focused track out the two, this track is a synthetic symphony beautiful arpeggios and ethereal harmonies.

With such a stunning release from the young duo, we are more than keen to hear more from the Brisbane-based two piece in the future. Check out ‘The Sound’ below.
