Drum roll please; it’s Avec Sans first track of the year! Well, they did that reMix for Young Summer back in January, but this is 2015’s first original. London’s finest ElectroPop duo have been on a pretty solid winning streak in the past couple of years, seemingly concentrating on quality over quantity. It’s a philosophy I can get behind. Remember when a band you like’s new release was an exciting event? When bands didn’t just throw up everything they ever do on SoundCloud in an attempt to ride a relevance wave until a new track from so-and-so just becomes a mundane everyday occurrence? No? Well I do; and Avec Sans, in releasing only the cream of their crop, only when perfectly honed, bring back a little of that new release excitement into liking a band. Anyhoo, here’s Resonate.
Opening up in constricting style with some abrasive, grinding, synth work being tempered by Alice’s sweet vocal. When he’s not cosplaying a younger me, Jack St. James has a knack for intertwining aggressive grooves with sparling melodies, bringing musical beauty out of an ominous pallet. Resonate is a thumping mid-tempo ElectroPop epic that it’s hard not to get swept up in as the starlight arpeggios swirl around an intimate and intoxicating vocal performance, all set to a hammerfall kick. We (the UK) should be dead proud of The Sans, we’re more than happy with them flying the flag for British ElectroPop. Represent.
