MBM – Light & Shadows: The Transcendent Trappings of Electro Synth Pop

MBM dropped their latest track ‘Light & Shadows’ on Jan, 17, 2018. Their debut trippy mix has you instantly gripped by the first verse as you wait for the hooks to snag you and drag you further into transcendence. The female vocals have that iconic Electronica Synth Pop Styling which is certainly not a sound that’s hard to miss on the radio these days. Yet the power of the vocals puts MBM in a league of their own, while listening to Light & Shadows you’re gripped by every twee pronunciation of every syllable which draws you deeper into the uplifting cacophony of sound.

If you’re a fan of Slowdive, London Grammar, My Bloody Valentine or Angel Olsen, you can’t go wrong with this track and it’s immersive, ambient beats. You could hear a pin drop against the muted, yet monolithically rounded sounds that are weaved into the seamless progression of this track.
