2014 Preview: Listen Out For #3 – Avec Sans

5 Dec

Avec Sans

Avec Sans may have only recently found a way into our pop loving heart, but they have immediately taken up a prominent place there with stellar releases “Hold On” and “Shiver” (one of the tracks of the year in our humble opinion).

Following a support slot for Little Boots at London’s Heaven recently, the duo with roots in Manchester and Trinidad, are getting set for a big year. And we’re not the only ones to think so, with esteemed pop-adjudicator Popjustice saying of a potential full-length release from Avec Sans, ”this has all the makings of one of 2014’s best electronic pop albums”. And who are we to argue with that?

What they do so well, and what we absolutely adore, is make fantastically upbeat and danceable tunes. Electro sparkles and beats flash and pulse like a grand firework display against a night sky of synths and melody. Choruses are made to be sung along to while your feet tap and shuffle, heads nod, arms twist and bodies convulse in rhythmical movement; sprung into life by the infectious and compelling sounds.

“Shiver” in particular is a brilliant light of pop magnificence, perfect for a time of year when the Christmas lights sparkle and dazzle above. Like Peter Pan on a sugar rush, Alice’s vocals twist and turn through the air, spinning and whizzing amongst the decorations as they hang over the streets and revellers below. We said before that it was fucking fantastic and it just gets better with each listen, as do Avec Sans and we expect Mr. Popjustice’s premonition to be bang on the money.
