We had a quick look at the video for UK ElectroPop heroes Fenech-Soler’s forthcoming new single, Last Forever, earlier this month, but now the single release is drawing nearer, and indeed the release of the following sophomore album from there guys titled Rituals, it’s time to sit down, or stand up, whatever’s your preference, and give the single a listen.
Last Forever is everything you’d want, and expect, from a Fenech-Soler tune. It’s a big, anthemic Pop song. Don’t be fooled by the first 7 seconds of the song sounding like Lion’s theme to TransFormers: The Movie, Last Forever soon launches into a feel-good, summery Indie-ElectroPop monster that is, more than the previous records, set to announce Fenech-Soler’s comeback. It’s still time for this to be a summer hit.
♫ Fenech-Soler – Last Forever
Fenech-Soler’s Last Forever is released 15th September with Rituals released a day later.
One of the UK’s best ElectroPop/Indie-electro outfits, Fenech-Soler, return this week with plans to unleash their second album later in the year and a taste of what to expect. It’s been a rough year or so for these guys, but they are back, fighting fit, and gearing up for a sold-out tour before the album drops.
Following last October’s All I Know single, this new track, Maiyu, proves why Fenech-Soler never disappoint. Kicking off with a deep Housey bassline, the track slowly builds into a rapturous, glitzy, ElectroPop anthem. Taking it’s time to switch between it’s pulsating, dirty synth bass grove and huge euphoric keys, Maiyu, takes you along for the ride as it dips and builds. Assisted by Ben;s rousing vocals and evocative lead lines the track build toward percussion fuelled finale that is sure to see this one as a live favourite.
♫ Fenech-Soler – Maiyu
Fenech-Soler’s new album is due out later this year.
All I Know is the new single from the amazing Fenech-Soler, After a trying year or so for the band it’s a welcome return, and is everything we’d have hoped for from the Indie-Electro four piece’s return.
Elliot Sanders directs this clip, which pulses with natural imagery along with the pulsing synth bass.
Fenech-Soler aren’t gonna’ let a paltry thing like cancer stop their ElectroPop juggernaut! While’s Ben is getting himself back to good health the team Fenech-Soler are re-releasing my favourite single of theirs, ‘Stop And Stare’.
And here’s the video, it’s post-apocalyptic LDN TV trash chiqé, very 80’s, very blue tinged Max Headroom, very cool.
All here at electronic rumors towers continue to wish Ben a speedy recovery.
‘Stop And Stare’ is out soon, Fenech-Soler’s self titled début album is out now.
This just in from camp Fenech-Soler, I won’t bother paraphrasing, I’ll just copy and past what the guys wrote:
“We are really sorry to have to let you all know that Ben has very recently been diagnosed with early stage cancer. We are absolutely gutted for him, but know that he is in capable hands and he is in really good spirits considering the news. He has a short course of chemo treatment to get through and will be back fighting fit in a couple of months- the recovery rate for testicular cancer is extremely high.
This does mean that, with great regret, we will need to postpone our upcoming UK tour until after our busy festival period. This is also why we’ve had to reschedule our European tour.
We were massively looking forward to coming out and playing to you all later this month and we’re very happy that our Manchester and London dates have sold out in advance. For all those that were coming, your tickets will still be valid for the rescheduled shows. Details of those to be announced shortly. Please bear with us whilst those arrangements are made.
In the meantime, we are going to be very busy promoting our next single ‘Stop And Stare’. The doctors have reassured us that Ben will be fighting fit and ready to play a full set of summer festivals with the list already including Lovebox, Bestival, Camp Bestival, Parklife, Ibiza Rocks, Pukkelpop and Oxegen. Many more being announced over the next few weeks.
Again, we’re really sorry to have to postpone the UK and European shows but we’re sure you all join us in wishing Ben a speedy recovery.
Ross, Andrew and Daniel”
That’s some harsh news right there, but we all wish Ben good health and a fast recovery.
He’d better beat that damed cancer in time for Bestival or there’ll be trouble!
Electro-House duo ZX have been a bit quite for a while now, since we last wrote about the them have changed their name (well, spelling at least) to Zedex (which I think is better) and, if their new reMix of their friends Fenech-Soler new current ‘Demons’ is anything to go by, have been developing a smoother, slicker sound.
The reMix rocks more of a Disco vibe than their previous, more distorted noisy House, offerings, showing a defiantly maturing of their sound. This track almost goes Cosmic in places with big, lush, synth pads washed with reverb siting atop deep, deep bassline. there is certainly something unique about Zedex’s tunes, I can’t put my finger on it, maybe there’s a little Chicago House influence in there or something. Whatever it is, it’s Nu-Disco with a twist, and I can’t wait to hear more.
The reMix package for January’s release of Fenech-Soler’s ‘Demons’ single is nothing short of stunning.
We’ve already unleashed the Yuksek reMix on you, now check out this pretty minimal mix from London’s Drums Of Death. Walking a like between minimal Techno and 90’s House the track builds up a pretty irrisiatable groove and provides an very different, but interesting, task on one of the best tracks from Fenech-Soler’s début album.
