In a haunting combination of icy dystopian synths and warm human vocals, Brooklyn Indie-ElectroPop artist Rush Midnight (Twin Shadow bassist Russ Manning) unleashes his new single from Cascine this week. It’s first track to be taken from his forthcoming album, due out later this year, which follows on from his critically acclaimed +1 EP of last year.
The new single, Don’t Give Me Your Love, is a melting pot of elements that make up a surprising whole. Lo-Fi beats and a rolling Indie-Electro bassline would seem to make strange bedfellows with SynthWave’s 80s soundtrack synths and vintage Pop leads, but it works amazingly well. Add to this Russ’ husky, delay washed vocals, that lend the track a personal quality and you’ve got a blissful ElectroPop tune that words dramatic BladeRunner synthscapes and introspective bedroom Pop at the same time. Wonderful.
