The Acid are touring! Can’t wait to catch them at the Deaf Institute next month.

In the meantime check out the sublime ‘Basic Instinct’.
Loving the smooth tones of Zola Blood. The track ‘Meridian’ flows like a well-oiled electronic machine. Great lyrics mix with perfect melodies and just the right amount of instrumentation.
German dream pop outfit Hazy Mountain make beautifully textured electronic synth based pop. Ethereal sampled vocals push through washes of synth hits, rhythmical bass and lead lines. Well worth getting in to!
Another pretty mysterious UK based producer is Palm Beach. From the two original tracks on Soundcloud and the two remix tracks Palm Beach look like ones to watch. The smooth synth arps mixed with disco beats and warm string synths are wonderful.
Brighton based electronic band Phoria make beautifully subtle arrangements which build and fall wrapped in epic synths and vocal samples mixed with piano, strings and lead vocals. The EP ‘Display’ is a mark of things to come.
