Here comes an exciting combination of 80’s ethereal synth pop with house-dance beats made in Asia! Their previous club-friendly EP “We Are Watching” brought them comparisons to bands in the likes of SAINT ETIENNE, GOLDFRAPP, LA ROUX, CHICANE or yet DELERIUM in their trance/dance era. Today, Singapore based duo COSMIC ARMCHAIR return with a new 5-track EP full of compelling dance beats, ethereal female vocals and melodic synth leads.
“I Don’t Belong Here” is a relentless catchy tune revealing the band’s self-assured club determination at its best. This song has the privilege of being remixed by legendary Trance Republic DJ FXH (Felix X Hoo) for an awesome upbeat radio edit and by one of Singapore’s most famous deep house DJ Brendon Pereira (resident at club Kyo and superclub Zouk) for an extended floating dub mix.
The EP also holds the more synthpop oriented song “Just One Look” and ends up with a lighter version of “Marching Of The Days” compared to its club mix we discovered on the previous EP, and which adds some more sound cohesion to the EP with its euphoric clubby touch and carrying melodic leads… This is alternative dance pop music with an edgy commercial appeal…
This EP is only available as a download via Bandcamp (see player below).
