Telepathe – Throw Away This 7″

Here’s another from the White Iris label, being the latest offering from the sweeping electronic duo TELEPATHE in nearly three years. This is the first step towards their upcoming full length, but there’s still no telling exactly what that will include.

Since the end of their last tours in 2010, Telepathe has intentionally settled down and tried to maintain a low profile while cooking up various demos to keep themselves busy. Of their newly recorded material these two tracks are the first to be unveiled, which may or may not give us a look into their sophomore effort, but at this point only time will tell. However if there’s one thing we can be certain of, it’s the quality of this striking new single “Throw This Away” that has us flustered right now. Filling out just shy of three minutes, Telepathe struck gold with this equally spectral and sexy A-side. Driven by an unsettling strobe light texture and reverberating basses, these qualities quickly gives this futuristic dance gem it’s fuel to push forward. Swaying choruses are dominated by their chilling spiritual tones, broadened by vocal chants and feelings of the supernatural as this provocative prize unfolds.

Flipping over to the B-side the duo ditches the unsettling vibes and goes with a smoother and more efficient jam that gradually gains its momentum. Vocal chanting can’t help but sound more authoritative and sexy, burdened by sweeping electronics and strangely fluttering synths that are nearly impossible to accurately point out, yet they dominate the air by the end of the track. Now check out both tracks below and keep your fingers crossed for their upcoming full length.

  1. I think the thing I love most about them is that they sound like a band from the 80s. Solid!
