Norwegian pop artist LearningToDive released their latest entrancing single ‘TAINTED’ to guide global anger in the right direction by attacking the glorification of the military-industrial complex.
With a similar synthpop style to the likes of Covenant, And One and VNV Nation paired with awakening lyrics which were penned to shake the listener from complacency around one of the biggest threats faced by the environment and humanity, the 80s post-punk-inspired single dropped at the perfect time.
Based on TAINTED, LearningToDive could easily be considered as the Adam Curtis of synthpop.
‘Falling Leaves’ is the entrancingly melodious sophomore single from New Zealand-based Alt Electronica artist LearningToDrive, if it doesn’t leave you transfixed, you may want to check if you’ve still got a pulse.
The artist, composer and producer used an intoxicatingly sublime blend of Alt Rock, 80’s Pop and Post Punk within their expressive sound to create an absorbing platform for their introspective-laden lyrics to fall into.
Their ability to connect the dots of the human experience while quashing malignant emotion under swathes of lush reverb and searingly reverberant bass is unparalleled.
With a debut EP in the pipeline for 2021, you’ll definitely want LearningToDrive on your radar.
