syn
SÝN (Germany): is the colourful new wave duo of the berlin avantgarde artists cruxguerre and nora below (bpitch ctrl, bomb boutique). the song “thats you” is bursting from energy, sent from a bewildering electronic planet with punky guitar riffs and multi layered vocal tracks in a complex arrangement. nora belows distinctive vocals lead through the song turning to aggressive jazz and cruxguerres clear voice transforms to a threatening bass. the harmonic element of pop is shattered and recomposed tenderly.
