With multiple cyber bags full of mail carrying sonic goodness landing daily covering individual singles is not something we can often find the time for but there are some which we feel we need to urge you go explore, encounters such as Such Imperfection, the new track from SIMESKY+FRITCH.
The song comes from a collaboration between Belgium based UNITED SIMESKY INSTITUTES and Welshman FRITCH (AKA Will Wilkinson/Rats on the Run), an artist who last year rewired the imagination and captivation with his acclaimed and appropriately named album, Unwire Rewire Rewire. Together they have woven a sound which lovingly looks back at eighties synth pop/ new wave. In the same way that we are late to its release party but timely in awakening your attention so Such Imperfection is a song which would have found an all embracing home back in the era it pays homage too yet is a feast for today’s ears and fresh in modern invention.
It gently rises up in ears, a sonic shimmer and rhythmic pulse the initial and inimitable tempting which the song soon expands. Keys and guitar weave their webs as Fritch’s vocals contemplate with individual expression and lively dexterity, virulent catchiness lining every aspect even in its more sombre moments.
With the electronic bubbling of BLANCMANGE, the virulence poppiness of MINISTRY in their synthpop days, and the dilemma nurtured shadows of THE CURE, Such Imperfection captivated and involved body and senses with every passing second.
With a 12”Love-Letter Edit of the song as a B-side, Such Imperfection is a must for electro pop and adventure bred hearts. Here’s to the hope of more such adventures and explorations with Simesky+Fritch, in a time of ever encroaching shadows we need their kind of light.
