SINGLE REVIEW: Sleep (GAZEY)
SINGLE: Sleep // ARTIST: Gazey
Gaze into a quivering synth-soaked universe with Perth lo-fi synth kids Gazey and their brand new track 'Sleep'.
Leaping out as the first hint of new material off Gazey's forthcoming debut album, 'Sleep' is a spiralling wonderland of icy synths, Prince-ish vocals and a growling bass-synth steering proceedings into toe-tapping bliss.
Boasting a snazzy line-up of analogue synths fused with an experimental cocktail of disco, lo-fi pop and some serious 80s vibes, there's an undeniable lure to this pulsing morsel of retro modernity that defies time and space, as Ezekiel Padmanabham from the group explains:
"We really enjoy putting genres next to each other. It's not about living in nostalgia but putting the old together with the new; the way it happens in a person’s head."
Produced and mixed by the band themselves and mastered by Mike Jelenik, there's certainly a lot more to come when Gazey unleash their debut album later this year. For all other Gazey info head here.
