The king & queen of post-Futurist SynthPop, or Minimal Synth, or whatever Xeno & Oaklander return later in October with a brand new album, ‘Set & Lights’.
‘Open Walls’ is a taste of what you can expect from the new record. Slightly more upbeat than you would expect from X&O. Full of the duo’s trademark icy analog synth work and the interweaving of deadpan and ethereal vocals, the track has all the elements of back room Minimal-Synth there, but also contains something of a bounce to it. It’s a nice compliment to ‘The Staircase’ and bodes well for the forthcoming album.
‘Set & Lights’ is released 11th October on Wierd Records.
