L-Space - 'Alone'
Another retrospective highlight from my 2017 comes in the form of Glasgow electronic-dream-pop outfit L-space. I was lucky enough to catch these at the tail end of last year playing support for Glasgow Shoegazers Life Model.
Their track Aloe came out during my brief hiatus for festival season and i've been kicking myself for missing it on release date but here we go none the less.
Featuring a very Ultravox Vienna style electronic kit sound, slowly meandering synths and airy vocals, this floating, almost ethereal dream pop ballad will draw you in with ease as the group steadily build their instrumentation adding minimalist guitar and doubling up on the depth of the drum machine.
Slowly, surely... Its all about the anticipation, the listeners longing for the to song reach its apex, which is in-fact its true peak. A great listen.
