Downtempo Electro Pop

Astroblue Express invite you to let love in through their cinematic dream pop single, Welcome.

We are stoked to see the return of the New York-residing duo Astroblue Express after their trippy ethereal tones in Cotton Candy Dreams gave us a potent dopamine fix earlier this year.

Their latest single, Welcome, is an artfully composed feat of cinematic dream pop that weaves a conceptual narrative of optimism through the pulsating downtempo electronica beats. Welcome is for anyone who has scolded themselves for being naïve in the past and find themselves unable to trust in the present through fear of future pain. In its essence, Welcome is an invitation to let love in again. After being exposed to the gently layered vocals, soft transcendent crescendos and lyrics that pull you into a brighter perspective, how could you possibly refuse?

Welcome is due for release on November 5th. You can check it out for yourselves by heading over to Soundcloud.

Signe Vange explores the more affable side of our human condition with her sophomore EP, ‘Human’.

After a ten year absence from the airwaves, Danish singer-songwriter Signe Vange reflected on the beauty and challenges of life before sharing her harmonic introspection through her sophomore EP, ‘Human’.

The title single captures the possibility for harmony in a collective and interpersonal sense; as the tender synths pull you into the ambiently colourful soundscape, Signe Vange vocally provides imagery that allows you to swim amongst the more pleasant facets of the complex and often destructive human condition.

It is singles such as Human that remind you of the true beauty of music and its ability to comfort us even if the emotions that come to the surface at the command of the progressions are on the more painful side of the bitter-sweet dichotomy.

Human released on May 5th; you can check it out for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.
