Laura Callier and Dania Luck will tempt with ethereal vocals
and blissful pop, but their lure works best for the dancefloor
on their aggressive electronic split. Gel Set and Stacian combine
forces for the first time on their Moniker Records 12", translating
eternal, lucid longing into catchy synth riffs and repetitive oblivion.
That tempting sound: it's so easy to call this outer space, or
otherworldly, but these grooves are better on earth. Stacian sets the
tone with immediacy and urgency. This synth cadet is refueling,
tarnished and returning to battle. Fragile layers shine through relentlessbeats. Gel Set veils this urgency with the inviting fallout, stripping Stacian's layers to core beats and synth excursions. Yet, those vocals tempt, again and again, luring listeners with a simple urge: dance.
If you're tempted to dismiss synth pop as space-age posturing, Stacian and Gel Set answer with a left turn back to earth. Here, their beautiful language translates into an electronic fantasy: Keep spinning this, keep dancing.
