This weeks compilation features some of my favorite new releases in the realm of synthpop and electronic music. We are thrilled to finally be able to feature new music from Empathy Test. Additionally, the return of Blondfire and Missing Persons is exciting, as are new artists Club Intl, Boniface and Nejbo
Manic, the latest single from Toronto’s Prince Innocence, may have just heralded the end of synthy summer jam season. The deep, bassy intro hearkens back to late 90’s Triphop. The song itself has a dark and ominous feel throughout. The lyrical content does nothing to brighten the mood, with its reference to ‘dark hallways and wasted days’.
