Flashlights, Binary’s latest member…and then there were eight

Binary Entertainment, the West Coast’s ElectroPop mafia, has for so long been a collection of seven acts (which made our Binary Week pretty convenient!), well now that seven has become eight with the introduction of Flashlights.

This Denver based duo of Ethan Converse and Sam Martin’s reverb washed ElectroPop owes as much to Chillwave as it does to Binary’s Dreamwave stable, but carves out a sound for itself apart from the two genres. Emotive and introspective, Flashlights’ songs feel impassioned, both in vocal delivery and the haunting melodies of the music, creating an atmosphere that feels at once strange yet really close to home. That’s not to say the music is purely ethereal, the band have a ear for groove in the rhythm section too. Check out their first single for Binary, ‘Glowing Eyes’, it’s a synthesizer dream!

Flashlights – Glowing Eyes

These synthetic dreamers seem like a welcome addition to the Binary camp, you can check out more of their stuff on their Bandcamp page, and look out for an album on Binary in June!
