Who’d have a thought some reviews from a year+ ago would have led to a hustle and project? Who’d have thought that in a year or bit longer, almost an album worth of material would be created in a world of 80’s neon and synthpop?
Well all of that happened and here’s the first single.
This is ‘Such Imperfection’. Out now on all streaming services.
….The press release goes something like this….
Simesky+Fritch – ‘Such Imperfection’
A future retro love-letter to gloss-polished pop, neon nu-wave and cool indie
As the decades collide from The Cure, Peter Gabriel and Brian Eno to Tears for Fears, Royksopp and Robyn, every sweetly honed sonic shines sultry. And in extending that love letter to the best lost tradition of A-side and B-side 80’s vinyl, the 7” edit arrives with a full 12” mix that weaves synthwave with prog-glam and grandeur. This is lo-fi turned hi-fi and glistening.
Living in Belgium, United Simesky Institutes has worked with Budapest Scoring Orchestra and scored high with releases of sweet 80’s synthwave amongst the ranks of Vice & We Write About Music. Fritch comes from Wales, and comes fresh from an album that gained 5-star comparisons to Bowie’s Blackstar and Scott Walker. This is music that moves across boundaries, this is UK and Belgium combined.
But right here a new cult is created. Right here is a new sound entirely.
With shared production, shared writing, shared artwork, shared visions, the debut single from Simesky+Fritch is a celebration of a meeting of minds. It’s a lean synth-kissed passion for pop.
This is music that cuts across decades. This is new nu-wave love for the steal.
