Love What Survives
A revolving hall of mirrors – synths and grooves expand and contract, oscillating between soft melodicism and robust, angular textures.
Their 3rd full-length is further refracted by a host of exceptional guest talents. It features fantastic collaborations with the likes of King Krule (some of his best work), shop fave Micachu, the ever wonderful James Blake and French-Mexican singer-producer Andrea Balency, who all add more life and vibrancy.
Dominic Maker and Kai Campos have come a long way since their debut. Sounding like a full band rather than a duo, they are embracing different sonic textures and influences, ranging from post-punk and dream pop dance, to a weird gospel number. Melancholic, catchy and danceable – this record’s got it all. Think The Cure, Neu and New Order all being given a modern make over with 2 vintage synths by Warp Records.
