Ondist – So Fragile: Soul-Swellingly Good Synthpop

So Fragile” is just one of the tenderly inviting contained on Electronica trio Ondist’s strikingly unique third album Electricity. All too often in Electronica, sentiments can feel a little synthetic, but So Fragile was never in danger of being unevocative. The vigorously high-vibe feel comes in equal measure through the undemanding yet entrancing Electronic beats and Maya Coppola’s distinctively alluring vocal timbre.

Once you look at the dynamic of Ondist, you may start to understand why their Synthpop sound is as eclectic as it is electric. Corbin Dooley, Nick Poortman, and Maya Coppola are located across Arkansas, New Zealand and New York. The fact this album was released almost feels serendipitous. It’s a collision of contrasting aural vision, you can practically hear the collaborative chemistry.

You can check out So Fragile via Spotify.

Mdnite – Young and Tired: Darkly Soulful Synth Pop


“Young and Tired” is the second synth-led, reverb-drenched, darkly soulful single from Alt Pop duo Mdnite.

It’s vulnerable, it’s delicate, and it’s raw enough to make your tear ducts sting through the mix of starkly exposing lyrics and the delicacy of the soundscape. Young and Tired feels like an aural invitation to be honest with yourself. The direct nature of the vocals holds a mirror to your apathy, fear, and insecurity, which may be tough to look into, but it’s incredibly refreshing to get such a visceral experience from a track.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out Young and Tired for yourselves. In the mean time head over to SoundCloud where you can listen to their debut single Shot the Moon.
