Earlier this year, one of our favorite local duos Novelties hinted that they were working with Toronto-based indie electronic trio closely on an upcoming collaboration. The new track “Away With Me” dropped today and it blends the dark pop we’ve come to love from Novelties with closely’s indie electronica. Take a listen below.
“Away With Me” takes off with dreamy vocals swirling around pulsating percussion. Kelly Mylod and Sophie Noire’s ethereal voices blend with Michael Cranston’s to create hypnotic melodies, begging to “take you away with me.” The tempo seamlessly changes throughout as they experiment with the lush orchestration, resulting in the perfect relaxing summer track.
We’ll keep our eyes peeled for more soothing electronic/indie tracks from both of these groups!
